Medical staff of ATBUTH Bauchi suspends strike

BAUCHI – Members of the Joint Health Sector Union, Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University Teaching Hospital, Bauchi, on Thursday suspended the indefinite strike embarked upon to demand for payment of salary arrears.

The acting chairman of the union, Mr Babangida Demdis, announced the suspension of the two-week-old strike at a news conference.

Demdis said the action followed an intervention by the Emir of Bauchi, Alhaji Rulwanu Adamu, who prevailed on officials of the union to suspend the strike.

He commended members of the union for the support and cooperation given to the officials of the union during the strike. (NAN)
