thousands of ambulance workers stage latest strike over pay

The GMB said more than 11,000 ambulance workers will walk out in England and Wales on Monday in the long-running dispute over pay and staffing.

GMB national secretary Rachel Harrison said: “Ambulance workers across England and Wales will strike today – entirely because this Government is tin-eared.”.

It has been over a month since the Government has engaged in any meaningful dialogue. They have been silent and aren’t willing to discuss pay.

“I am committed to keeping talking to unions about what is fair and affordable for the upcoming financial year, as well as broader concerns around conditions and workload so that the NHS can become a better place to work.”
