National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives Withdrawal of Membership

Posted on: Fri 05-05-2023


It would be recalled that in 2008 or thereabout, the leadership of five Unions in the health sector came together and formed the body now called JOHESU. The purpose of this noble idea was to unite and have a formidable body that would fight their members common interest. The immediate demand then was a common salary structure of their members at all level of health care system. 

The product of the unity brought about the salary structure known as CONHESS. It was expected that after the objective was achieved, the industrial would resume their Individual mandate as approved by the Office of the Registrar of Trade Unions. However, this was not done for reasons best known to the Unions. 

In the light of the foregoing, NANNM as one of the members or JOHESU wish to formerly write and Inform you arid all other members that, it has withdrawn Its membership from JOHESU. Let it be noted that from now henceforth, NANNM Is not a member of JOHESU. 

Consequently, you are by this letter asked to remove the leg° of NANNM from the letterhead paper of JOHESU and any other relevant documents. To this end, JOHESU has seized to represent and / or negotiate on behalf of the entire Nurses and Midwives in Nigeria at all levels of Health care system. 

NANNM appreciates the working relationship in the past and wish all of us the best in the discharge of our various duties.
