Workers Shut Down Hospital In Enugu State, Protest Seven Months Non-Payment

There was a protest staged by workers of the Enugu State University Teaching Hospital (ESUTH) on Wednesday, over the non-payment of seven months’ salary arrears by the State government.

It was reported that the affected workers include nurses, cleaners, and security guards were reportedly employed by the immediate past administration of Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi.

The protesting workers who shut down all hospital activities marched through various departments with placards chanting labour songs.

Narrating their ordeal, one of the affected workers told SaharaReporters that they have not been paid since February.

The worker said, “We have made our representation to the state government. We have also appealed to the management of the hospital before to pay us our wages but to no avail. We took to the street today so that the world would hear us.

“It is most heartless of a government to owe wages of workers for up to seven months at this period, yet the workers are still coming to work every day. There’s no justification to owe us monthly salaries.”

The aggrieved workers, however, appealed to Governor Peter Mbah to pay them their salaries.
