Ambulance workers across Yorkshire are set to stage a one-day strike next month in a long running row over cutbacks and changes to the service. The Unite union is protesting against plans to have people with six weeks training working alongside paramedics.
Yorkshire ambulance workers have voted to hold a one day strike on Tuesday 2nd April. Members of the Unite union will work out because of a dispute over cost cutting measures which could see assistants with only six weeks training brought in to work with paramedics.
Union members also voted in favour of implementing a continuous overtime ban from 26th March.
