The Trust is in on-going discussions with UNISON representatives regarding the recent review of A&E operations.
Executive Directors of Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust met with representatives of UNISON on Monday 3 March 2014 and a further meeting is scheduled for later this week. Monday’s meeting was encouraging and we continue to work together towards a positive outcome.
We remain focused on providing safe, responsive and high-quality services to patients and looking after the welfare of our staff
As Yorkshire Ambulance staff prepare to strike today, members of another major union are threatening to ballot for a new round of strike action.
Unison, which has 3,000 members working for Yorkshire Ambulance Service, wants a number of demands to be met, as it says changes in working practices are affecting the welfare of staff.
They claim staff are often left hungry and tired, which they say could impact on patients.
Demands include ensuring staff can take breaks and that ambulances should not be staffed only by two emergency care assistants.
The Yorkshire Ambulance Service has said it is concerned about a five hour walk-out by some of its staff, but will have back-up plans in place.
Once again this will take place without any concessions for the most seriously ill and injured patients and we remain concerned over this type of action. We have continued to seek on-going dialogue with Unite the Union through Acas (Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service).
