Striking National Association of Resident Doctors, NARD, yesterday, agreed to suspend the ongoing nationwide indefinite strike, if members received alert of their salaries.
The Federal Government’s negotiation team, led by Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, and the union were locked in a marathon meeting that lasted over 12 hours to resolve the differences that led to the strike.
Following the insistence of the resident doctors not to call off the strike until their demands were met, especially salary, and the pressure from the government team for the doctors to go back to their duty posts without further delay, NARD finally agreed to suspend the strike today but only after receipt of payment of salaries shortfall worth N13.4 billion.
Before the doctors succumbed to the pressure from the Ngige-led government team, the communiqué of the meeting was amended about six times with the aid of torchlight, and signed by parties at about 2:57am, yesterday.
After the prolonged argument at the conciliatory meeting, Senator Ngige said the indefinite strike unsettled government’s negotiation team.
He, however, noted that the parties resolved to review NARD’s position because their NEC-in-session did not believe in the terms of settlement bargained with government agencies.
