Alderney ambulance strikes continue

The ambulance strike in Alderney is continuing into its second day.

The volunteers who run the ambulance service walked out on strike at 8am on 5 December.

The action was in support of Chief Officer Melanie Walden who they say was ‘unfairly dismissed’.

William Tate, President of the States, has agreed to facilitate talks between the crew and the board of Alderney ambulance service.

It was unanimously agreed by those present that the crew do not wish this to be a prolonged dispute and all want to resolve the issue and resume normal ambulance service duties as soon as possible.
