Strike action across the Ambulance service will escalate with more than 2500 workers joining the dispute on Monday (23 January). The first day of action was on December 21 last year.

The Unite industrial action will affect ambulance trusts in the West Midlands, North West and North East. Wales will also take strike action on Monday 23 January in the increasingly bitter dispute over pay.
