UCH Security, Attendants Demand Equal COVID-19 Allowance With Doctors by heykims(m): 9:09am On Jun 23, 2020
As cases of COVID-19 increase in Oyo State, staff of the University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan, protested non-payment of their share of the hazard allowance paid to doctors and other health workers.


They took their protest to the office of the Chief Medical Director (CMD) of the teaching hospital, Prof. Jesse Abiodun Otegbayo.

The hospital workers asked the management of the hospital to pay their 50 per cent share of the COVID-19 hazard allowance.

Though Vanguard gathered that the low-level staff like security and attendants were paid 10 per cent and 20 per cent in some cases, they said they deserved 50 per cent of the allowances because they were more exposed to the pandemic than the doctors.
They called on the Federal Government to implement the COVID-19 hazard allowances agreement for all medical workers without any preferential treatment to medical doctors.
The Public Relations Officer of the hospital, Mr Toye Aderinlola told newsmen, “Nobody is fighting for not collecting allowances. What they can be saying is that those who received 50 per cent and 10 per cent. But if it is for allowances, as far as we are concerned the government has paid what they want to pay to all categories of health workers”.

“Maybe they are channeling that agitations to Abuja. It is not UCH. It is the Federal Government. We never had a role in it. It is Abuja that pays not the hospital management,” he explained.

I'm dumbfounded, this is because they have all been receiving the same hazard allowance of 5k as doctors, nurses, so they believe they are entitled to whatever the core health workers get as allowances.
Arrant nonsense!

Every health care worker exposed to COVID-19 should be adequately paid!

But these guys should note that doctors, nurses and laboratory professionals are more exposed to the virus than they are. This comparison is just pointless on all fronts.
