Oyo: Doctors begin warning strike in UCH



Resident doctors at the University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan started a five-day warning strike, yesterday over alleged short-payment in their salaries and allowances.

Chairman of UCH Association of Resident Doctors (ARD), Dr. Lukman Ogunjinmi, said members embarked on the strike at 8:00am, yesterday, following a decision taken at a congress on Tuesday afternoon.

The bone of contention is the ‘skipping,’ which has to do with increased salary for resident doctors.

“We wrote them (UCH management) a letter on October 7, 2016 where we made our demands clear.

“Meanwhile, the CMD told me to arrange congress last Saturday to appease to our members, that the money would be paid; only for management to short-pay us.
