Pharmacists speak on strike threat


Pharmacists have urged government to desist from dialoguing with Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) and National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD).They noted that both groups are not trade unions, but professional bodies which lack the legal capacity to engage in trade disputes.

They have therefore called on the Joint Health Sector Unions (JOHESU), the umbrella body for workers in the health industry and its labour partners to apply legal action in obtaining redress, if government does not desist from dialoguing with any unlawful group in trade disputes henceforth.

Olumide Akintayo, National President, Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria (PSN) blamed government for treating NMA and NARD strike threats and actions with levity thereby protracting the crisis and disharmony in the industry
