Strike: Hospital Threatens To Apply ‘No Work No Pay’


Association of Resident Doctors (ARD), Nasarawa State, at the Dalhatu Araf Specialist Hospital (DASH) Lafia in Nasarawa State, proceed on a three-day warning strike over some policies initiated by the chief medical director, the management of the hospital has threatened to apply, “no work no pay” policy on the striking doctors.

Addressing a press briefing yesterday in Lafia, the DASH CMD, Dr Ikrama Hassan, said the warning strike called by the resident doctors would not affect the services rendered by the hospital to its prospective patients.

The CMD warned the resident doctors on the payroll of his hospital that "no work, no pay" would be applied to any resident doctor that joins the three days warning strike declared by ARD. He said that a section of the broad leadership of the DASH ARD found it difficult and beneath their dignity to constructively and amicably engage their trainers, departments heads or even the management on issues of common interest.

"This group's preoccupation is activism for its own sake. The group's main goal is the total control of the union and the spoil thereof. To achieve this, an enemy must be created and the we-versus-them dichotomy entrenched.
