Four more strike dates announced for East Midlands Ambulance workers

More than 3,000 GMB Union ambulance workers across the Midlands have announced fresh strike dates.

New strike dates have been confirmed by GMB union for EMAS workers across the region.

Rachel Harrison, GMB National Secretary, said:

“GMB’s ambulance workers are angry. In their own words, ‘they are done’.

“Our message to the Government is clear – talk pay now.

“Ministers have made things worse by demonising the ambulance workers who provided life and limb cover on strike days – playing political games with their scaremongering.

“The only way to solve this dispute is a proper pay offer.

“But it seems the cold, dead hands of the Number 10 and 11 Downing Street are stopping this from happening.

“In the face of government inaction, we are left with no choice but industrial action.

“GMB ambulance workers are determined, they’re not going to back down.

“It’s up for this Government to get serious on pay. We are waiting.”

Paramedics, Emergency Care Assistants, call handlers and other staff will walk out as follows:

East Midlands Ambulance Service: 6 February, 20 February, 6 March, 20 March

  •  Nottinghamshire ambulance workers walk out in 24 hour strike action

  •  East Midlands Ambulance strike action on Wednesday
