Strike: OAUTH assures staff of industrial harmony
NNN: The Management of the Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital(OAUTH), Ile-Ife, has assured staff of the hospital of its commitment to ensure industrial peace and harmony.
This is contained in a statement issued by the hospital’s Head of Corporate Services, Mrs Kemi Fasoto, on Tuesday, following a two-day warning strike by doctors in the hospital.
Fasoto said the warning strike was caused by a disagreement between a House Officer and a Senior Nursing Officer in the hospital.
According to her, the hospital authorities have set up a panel to look into the issue, with a promise that the strike will not affect the treatment of the patients.
“The panel has commenced sittings and all parties involved have been invited with a view to resolving the issues reasonably and amicably within the ambit of the law.
“The management has been trying to put all appropriate measures in place to forestall similar occurrences in the future.
“The hospital prides itself on maintaining a culture of collaboration and synergy among all cadres of staff within the hospital,’’ she said.
The Association of Resident Doctors at the hospital on Tuesday embarked on a two-day warning strike over an alleged assault on one of them by a nurse.
The association in a statement signed by its president, Dr Nana Fayowole; General Secretary, Dr Anuforo Anthony; and the Public Relations Officer, Dr Adelaja Olasubomi, said the warning strike would commence from 8.00 a.m Tuesday, June 21, to 7.59 a.m on Thursday, June 23.
