Health workers shut down NAFDAC offices

Medical and Health Workers Union of Nigeria, MHWUN, Wednesday, shut down National Agency for Food and Drug Administrations and Control, NAFDAC, offices across the country over poor working condition and unpaid allowances.

Declaring an indefinite strike at the premises of the agency in Lagos, the State Chairman, MHWUN, Stephen Ibe directed workers to immediately vacate the premises of the agency.

To this end all NAFDAC offices at the seaports, land ports, airports have been shut indefinitely.

“All other offices of NAFDAC remain closed. It is not a warning strike. It is not JOHESU (strike). Workers can only resume when their 2012 and 2013 salary arrears are paid.

Other demands include payment of first 28 days after employment, travelling allowances, conversion of HND holders, Implementation of CONHESS among others.”
