Staffs at Lira University Teaching Hospital Stage Industrial Action Over Salary Dispute

A faction of employees at Lira University Teaching Hospital has initiated an industrial action over alleged underpayment by the University administration.

The protesting staff members under their Association of the National Union of Educational Institutions (NUEI)- Lira University branch, have cited failure by the university to implement a directive issued by the public service regarding salary adjustments.

The dispute, which has been brewing since September 2022, revolves around the directive for public universities to harmonize their salary structures across faculties and departments. Phyllis Ocwa, the Branch Secretary of NUEI, emphasized the significance of this directive, lamenting the university’s inaction despite repeated engagements with the administration.

“In light of the management’s failure to adhere to the directive from the public service, we are commencing an industrial action today, March 4th, 2024,” stated Phyllis Ocwa. He underscored the union’s efforts to resolve the matter internally, including discussions with the university council, but expressed disappointment over unfulfilled promises.

Jimmy Okeng, the Branch Chairperson, re- echoed Ocwa’s sentiments, asserting that the staff felt compelled to take action due to the administration’s inability to address their concerns effectively.

The industrial action, effective immediately, will see only essential departments operating with minimal staffing levels at Lira University Teaching Hospital, which caters for both the university and the wider community.

At the time of reporting, the university administration was yet to respond to the allegations, as they were reportedly engaged in discussions. However, Patrick Opio, the University Public Relations Officer, acknowledged the staff’s grievances and confirmed that the management had reached out to the relevant ministry for resolution.

Opio emphasized the vital role played by the staff in serving both the institution and the community, assuring the management’s commitment to resolving the salary dispute.

He further explained that efforts were underway to secure the necessary funds, noting that the institution had been advocating for salary adjustments since 2022.
