Labour React to Mass Sacking at EKSUTH

Given the alleged mass sacking of workers by the management of the Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital, Ado Ekiti, the organized labour has issued an ultimatum that the workers should be reinstated or a total strike will be embarked upon.


The leaders of the Trade Union Congress, Sola Adigun, and a host others urged the management to reverse its decision to avoid industrial action.


Adigun said, “When we came for this interface, we thought it was a rumor that workers would be sacked. But we have confirmed the intending part to sack our members to be working under a condition of service that is not palatable. They should not be in a hurry to sack because this will lead to our withdrawal of services.


“We have issued a 14-day ultimatum for all issues to be solved. The sack should not be a New Year package for our members because many are still working hard despite being owed several months of salaries and deductions, even without promotion.


He further added that “We say no to any unjustifiable sack of members. What we are experiencing is not the best. A situation whereby you brought a consultant to conduct interviews for workers and sent the names of workers you felt should be disengaged to the media for the announcement is not fashionable; it is not done like this anywhere.”
