Protesting outsourced cleaners, gardeners and security guards at the Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH) have called off their strike almost 10 days after they commenced protest at the hospital gate to press for the non payment of their 17 months salaries.

The workers had told Benue Plateau Chronicle that they were earlier owed 18 months but were paid one month outstanding salary  by the Management of JUTH to pacify them to return to work last week.

Their action crippled environmental cleaning in the hospital as our correspondent had observed litters around while some garbage cans were filled to the brim.

The workers, who are working under eight outsourcing companies, however, returned to work after pleadings by the companies.

One of the workers told Benue Plateau Chronicle  that, “it seems JUTH has threatened the contractors and the contractors pleaded with us to return to work so we agreed to go back on the hope that our salaries would be paid soon.”

The Chief Medical Director (CMD) of JUTH, Prof. Edmund Banwat had earlier told our correspondent that the non payment of the salaries to the outsourced staff was a national issue that cuts across all the teaching hospitals and federal medical centres.
