The Ondo State chapter of the National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives (NANNM) is currently mobilising to embark on an indefinite strike action over decision of the state government to pay half salary for the month of November 2020.
This is coming one week after doctors under the auspices of Ondo Government Doctors Forum (OGDF) began an indefinite strike action.
They kicked against the 50 percent salary paid to them by the state government .
The meeting however ended in a stalemate as the nurses passed a vote of no confidence on their leadership.
Armed with placards with different inscriptions, the nurses chased away labour leaders who came to intervene in the crisis .
