Angry Staff Shut Jos University Teaching Hospital Over Non Payment Of 30 Months Salaries!

Angry staff of Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH) Thursday, barricaded the gates of the hospital following the non payment of their 30 months salaries.

The facility located in Nukpis,Jos North Local Government Area of Plateau State was shut down by staff of the eight companies working
therein when our correspondent visited.

The distraught staff said they have been facing untold hardship and cannot meet their financial and social obligations to their respective families.

A Supervisor in one of the security companies who identified himself as Wakyil, said they are going to embarked on a 7-day warning cum sit-at-home strike and would make it indefinite if the authorities failed to address their complaints.

“It has not been easy with us all these past months. We can hardly feed our families and pay our kids school fees.”

“If Management does not address our demands,we shall be left with no other option but to embark on a total strike action,” he said.

“I want to assure my colleagues that there will be light at the end of the tunnel”,he concluded.

In the meantime,
efforts to speak with the Public Relations Officer of the Hospital,Mrs Bridget Omini were abortive as she said she was attending a Management meeting.

Some other aggrieved staff who spoke with our correspondent said lack of effective management is threatening to run the hospital aground.

They said some of the services rendered in the hospital were outsourced. The outsourced staff include the security,cleaners, gardeners amongst others.

It will be recalled that its host community last month, took to the streets asking Management to fulfil its corporate social responsibility as well as employ her indigines.
