Health workers under the auspices of the Medical and Health Workers Union of Nigeria, Enugu State, chapter, has began an indefinite strike action.


Chairman of the Union, Mr. Maurice Eze, who disclosed this to News Agency of Nigeria in Enugu said the strike action is to press home their demand for the non-implementation of the 2009 Salary Structure, which he said has not been fully implemented.


He said the state government had implemented the doctors’ Salary Structure, but that it had yet to implement that of the health workers.


Eze said, “All the states in Nigeria have implemented the structure, except Enugu.


“We have written and appealed to the state government to pay us but to no avail.


“Even when they took us to court, the court ordered them to pay us because it is our entitlement but the government refused to carry out the order.


“Our two months’ salaries for April and May 2009 were seized because we went on strike to press for our demand and up till this moment, we are yet to be paid the seized salaries.


“We will not call off the strike until the state government meets our demands, “ he added
