Recall that the workers had gone on strike in March and remained at home till June over the non payment of their wages.
However, government has vowed that it would not pay for the period they were out of office.
Meanwhile, some workers have, however, vowed never to accept the situation and signified intention to go on another strike next week, to press for the salaries.
But government, in a letter to the management of the hospital said that the request by workers and their unions for the refund of their salary deductions during the period of the strike, should be disregarded.
“Should any worker go on strike because of this, forward his or her name and the IPPIS number to the Federal Ministry of Health and the office of the Accountant General of the Federation for stopage of their salaries,” the letter warned.
The letter was signed by Dr Wapada Balamis, Director, Hospital Services, Federal Ministry of Health, and dated July 29 reaffirmed government’s commitment to ending the endless strikes by the health workers, and pointed out that the no work no pay rule would be applied to any strike action
