JUTH Workers Embark On Strike Over New Federal Tax Laws

Workers of the Jos University Hospital Teaching Hospital on Tuesday embarked on a three-day warning strike to protest the implementation of the new tax system.

They have also given a 21-day notice for the commencement of a total strike if their demands are not met.

In a statement signed by Dr. Ewuga Ovye on behalf of the Association of Resident Doctors; Mr. V. Lohdip on behalf of the National Association of Nigerian Pharmacists and Mr. Dakwal Manglet on behalf of Forum of Federation of Nigerian Nurses and Midwives, the workers expressed disappointment over the insistence of the management to go ahead with the implementation of the circular.

But the Chief Medical Director, Dr. Ishaya Pam, has described the action as unnecessary as it was directive from the Federal Government.
