Unite has announced two further days of strike action for Welsh Ambulance Service workers. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The industrial action will take place on 6 and 10 March. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The action is in addition to three days of strike currently taking place (20-22 February). ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Exemptions will be agreed in order to provide urgent life and limb cover. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Sharon Graham Unite General Secretary said: “The Welsh government needs to do the right thing, get round the table and resolve this dispute as matter of urgency. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“Until that happens the strikes will continue and Unite will continue to support its Welsh Ambulance members to the hilt.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Richard Munn Unite Wales Regional Officer said: “The Welsh government needs to recognise the strength of feeling among our members. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“They are angry and determined to get a deal that prevents further pay erosion. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“At the moment there is no end in sight for this dispute, unless a deal can be reached it has the potential to dominate the upcoming Welsh Labour conference in March.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
