Yorkshire ambulance workers strike again

14 February 2014

A call has been made for an independent inquiry by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) into the long-running Yorkshire ambulance dispute, as paramedics and ambulance staff prepare for two more strikes in the next week.

Unite, the country’s largest union, said that such an inquiry was needed so the Yorkshire public could judge for itself the impact on patient safety of £46 million of cuts over five years.

Unite’s 375 members will hold two further strikes on Friday (14 February) between 15.00 and 20.00 and next Monday (17 February) at the same time over the imminent introduction  of elongated shift patterns that could mean working 10 hours without a meal break. Unite Logo
