The Joint Health Sector Unions (JOHESU) has announced that its members will go on an indefinite strike from Wednesday, September 20, 2017 if the Federal Government fails to attend to its demands.
The union said the strike action, tagged ‘Operation Alligator Bite’, is an attempt to force the Federal Government to attend to its concerns about unfair treatment.
The union has long lamented that its members were being subjected to discrimination and industrial marginalisation in the health sector.

In the statement, they accused the Health and Labour ministries of conspiracy against the unions, and issued a 23- point demand.
