Ambulance workers to walk out on Monday

More than 3,500 GMB Union ambulance workers across the South East and South West will walk out on Monday 6 February 2023.

Paramedics, Emergency Care Assistants, call handlers and other staff will stage pickets across the regions.

The industrial action coincides with strike action by nurses and the picket line at the Royal Sussex Hospital,  in Brighton, will see ambulances workers line up next to their nursing colleagues. 

Workers across the ambulance service voted to strike over the Government’s imposed 4 per cent pay award and are furious over the Government’s apparent attempts to ‘smear’ them over life and limb cover on strike days.
