Resident Doctors in Ondo State Hospital Launch Warning Strike Over Unpaid Salaries

The Resident Doctors Association at the University of Medical Sciences Teaching Hospital, Ondo State, has commenced a 14-day warning strike due to the non-payment of seven months’ salaries to their new members. Members of the association staged a mini protest on the hospital premises, vowing to disrupt activities at the government-owned medical facility until their demands are met.

Dr. John Matthew, the President of UNIMEDTH ARD, expressed concern to journalists during the protest, highlighting the outstanding salaries and the need for February 2024 palliative payments to House Officers.

He also urged management to promptly address the shortage of clinical manpower and ensure the timely payment of February hazard allowances to their members.

Furthermore, he emphasized the ongoing commitment of their members despite the challenges posed by staff shortages due to the “Japa syndrome.” Meanwhile, the state chapter of the Nigeria Medical Association has urged the state government to address the shortage of resident doctors in state-owned hospitals.
