The Joint Health Sector Union, LAUTECH Teaching Hospital, Ogbomoso, has appealed to the Oyo state government to restore its salary in full and pay all outstanding arrears since January 2016.

JOHESU, in a statement signed by union representatives, Mr Lawal Abiodun, Mrs Akanbi Serifat, Mrs Oluwakemi Ogundipe, Mrs Ojebode Funmilayo and Mr Olowo Mahmud, said the workers were being owed eight and a half months salary as of May 2017 when it last was paid half salary.

Furthermore, the union debunked notions that the management of the hospital had accepted responsibility for paying staff salary since subvention was halved by the state government in January 2016.

This is just as the union urged the state government not to downsize in view of the ongoing restructuring.

JOHESU however said that it anyone indicted in the ongoing investigation should be brought to book, noting that the union would not shield anyone found complicit.

It would be recalled that union recently embarked upon a protest to press home its demands.
