Posted by E.L.E.X on June 29 2020 under News

Medical doctors under the employ of Lagos State government have resolved to extend the 21-day ultimatum they gave the state government by two weeks before they embark on a three-day warning strike.

The doctors, under the auspices of Medical Guild, had issued an ultimatum on June 4 on, asking the government to address issues that affect their members.

The issues include; the state government’s COVID-19 response, salary disparity, shortage of doctors, and Medical Residency Training Act among others.

In a statement obtained by our correspondent on Monday, the association said that at the end of the Emergency Congress held on Saturday, it has resolved that the state government should be given two weeks more ultimatum, starting from Monday, June 29, to meet at least 70 per cent of the demands or it will embark on a three-day warning strike.

The Chairman of the Guild, Dr. Oluwajimi Sodipo said the demands include “COVID-19 response issue that affects our members and non-inclusion of the Medical Guild in the activities; Lagos State Minimum Wage, Salary disparity between the Federal Government and Lagos State government doctors, MOU between FG and health care workers unions/ associations on COVID-19 allowances; shortage of doctors and the Medical Residency Training Act.”

“If these demands are not met by then, an emergency Representative Council meeting should be held for immediate activation of Medical Guild three days warning strike.”
