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).

Our focus will continue to be on safeguarding patient care and we are committed to minimising the level of disruption to our services. Throughout the periods of industrial action we will be taking steps to maintain operational cover to sustain effective and safe services for patients calling upon us for emergency medical assistance.
We will continue to make every effort to get to patients as quickly as possible, whilst maintaining high standards of patient care.
Ambulance staff are to stage a five hour strike today in Yorkshire in protest at new shift patterns.
Unite members at Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust have held four strikes since February and will walk out again from 3pm this afternoon.
The union claims planned longer shift patterns could see staff working for 10 hours without a meal break.
They plan to stage another five hour walk-out on Monday.

Tina Gelder reports:
Chris Cameron, a sociologist at the University of Huddersfield has been talking to Duncan and Rachel about the lasting psycological scars on the communities hit by the mining strikes, which started 30 years ago:
Today, March 5th, is a date that thousands of miners and their families will never forget - the start of the strike 30 years ago which heralded all but the end of the industry in our region within a decade.
One of the most infamous events of the dispute happened in June 1984 in South Yorkshire, when violent clashes at Orgreave left both left miners and police injured.
Those involved from the miners' side have become involved in a campaign to find out what really happened that day - 90 people were arrested but trials involving many of them collapsed.
