The week has started with a series of labour bodies announcing their intentions to go on industrial action in order to press their demands for a new national minimum wage with the Medical and Health Workers Union of Nigeria (MHUN) being the latest coalition to announce a strike action.
The MHUN has implored its workers to adhere to the call for an industrial action to start November 6 as agreed by various stakeholders of the organized labour.
The union further called on its members nationwide to comply and work in harmony during the industrial action.
The Head of Department (Admin) of the union, Musa Chara, in a statement on Monday, said there is no going back on the decision.
Chara said, “I have been directed to remind you of the decision of the congress to embark on an indefinite strike on the 6th of November, 2019, which was earlier communicated to you.

“You are thus directed to mobilize all members in your council to join in the action.
“Meanwhile, you are to reach out to and work in harmony with to labour centre and unionist in your state as well as civil society activist to ensure strike in your state.”
