Arising from a Virtual Emergency General Meeting of the Association of Resident Doctors LAUTECH Teaching Hospital Ogbomoso has agreed to embark on a 5-day warning strike over non-implementation of a new salary scheme.
The association also listed non-payment of outstanding in two-year half salary arrears culminating into one-year full salary between January 2016 to December 2017.
In a communique made available to InsideOyo.com on Sunday, the resident doctors alleged that no tangible effort or response has been seen from the Oyo state government since its issued ultimatum weeks ago.
They are pleading with the government to look into LAUTECH Teaching Hospital Ogbomoso’s case, vis a viz;
- Payment of our outstanding two-year half salary arrears culminating into one year full salary between January 2016 to December 2017
- Failure to commence LTH staff on new minimum wage salary which other workers in the State have been enjoying since January 2020
- The inability of the hospital to pay corrected CONMESS salary scale that other teaching hospitals in the country have been enjoying since 2014 in order to stop the continuous exodus of doctors from our hospital.
- Failure to make provisions for adequate Personal Protective Equipment to fight Corona pandemic.
- Failure to upgrade the present hazard allowance for health workers in the hospital which other health workers in the State have been enjoying since March 2020.
- Lack of proper plan to place our members on group life insurance package as the Corona pandemic takes its toll on our members.
- No tangible effort or response has been seen from the government.
