The Uganda nurses and midwives union has disassociated themselves from the court application that was filed by Uganda Medical Workers Union against the striking doctors.
The union yesterday took all the striking doctors and medical practitioners to high court civil division for engaging into an illegal industrial action.
The union also sued the Secretary General of the Uganda Medical Association Dr. Obuku Ekwaro and Workers MP Dr. Sam Lyomoki demanding for damages resulting from announcing a strike without following the prescribed legal procedures.
While petitioning the same courts, the General Secretary of UNMU says that the Uganda medical workers union only consulted them after submitting the petition so they were not part of that petition.
He however suggests that Social dialogue is the appropriate intervention that should be opted to address solutions to combat the challenges in health and also empower trade unions.
