The strike, called by the Medical Guild, was decided at an emergency general meeting of the Guild on Sunday, February 15.
According to the Chairman of the Guild, Dr Biyi Kufo, the meeting was convened to examine various issues that the guild had with the state government. The guild then directed that a warning strike to press home the doctors’ demands would commence at 8:00am today.
Kufo listed the specific issues that the doctors were agitating for to include the continued engagement of doctors as casual workers (young doctors just commencing employment, with no career path), the suspension of the training of resident doctors in the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) and the retrospective and selective application of the administration’s “no work, no pay” policy to members of the guild.
He said the guild had been in discussion with the administration on these issues for more than two years, following a strike in April and May 2012 when the “no work, no pay” policy was applied to members of the guild, in spite of the fact that the circular backing the policy was written two months after the strike action.
