Members of the association, who staged a protest on the premises of the facility on Tuesday, vowed to ground the activities at the government-owned medical facility if their demands were not met.

President of the UNIMEDTH ARD, Dr John Matthew, who spoke with journalists during the protest, lamented that their members were yet to be paid their entitlements.

According to him, other reasons for the warning strike, include the non-provision of palliatives to house officers since February, the non-payment of February hazard allowance despite promise by the state government to pay two months, and the dearth of staff due to the resignation of doctors from the institution.

He lamented that only 26 members of ARD remained in the hospital against 150 members a few months ago.

He said, “We demand full payment of the arrears of salaries owed our members and payment of February 2024 palliative to our house officers.

“Management should pay February hazard allowance to our members and urgently address the severe clinical manpower shortage in the institution. Our members work every day. There are no staff members due to Japa syndrome.
