Unite has announced that its members within Welsh Ambulance will take two further days of strike action on Monday 6 March and Friday 10 March 

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

As has been the case in previous strikes 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.”
