JOHESU KICKS AGAINST PLANNED DISCRIMINATION IN HAZARD ALLOWANCES
Uploaded by admin on May 3, 2020
The Joint Health Sector Wokers’ Union,JOHESU, wants government to develop a reliable template for the payment of hazard allowance for health workers in the post COVID-19 era.
It frowned at NMA’s decision to present selective list of health workers who will benefit from COVID-19 hazard allowances, insisting that the entire value chain of health workers, including non- clinical staff, must be beneficiaries of the hazard allowances.
The union also observed that not all doctors are equally exposed to the air, surfaces and persons carrying coronavirus and therefore demanded equal pay per hour.
