The Joint Health Sector Unions, JOHESU, on Wednesday agreed to suspend its six weeks old strike on Friday, June 1, 2018.
This decision followed the intervention of the National Industrial Court, NIC, which offered to take over the mediation process between the striking health workers and the government.
According to the union, its consideration of the plight of health-seeking members of the public also informed its decision to suspend the industrial action.
It can be recalled that an NGO, the Incorporated Trustees of the Kingdom Human Rights Foundation, KHRFI, had obtained a court order against JOHESU; mandating the health workers to suspend their industrial action on the 21st of May, 2018.
However, in pursuit of its constitutional rights to either comply or contest the court order, JOHESU filed an appeal at the Court of Appeal.
