Stroud ambulance staff join national 24-hour strike


Ambulance workers in Stroud joined around 25,000 other ambulance drivers, paramedics, call handlers and technicians across England and Wales who are staging a 24-hour strike over pay and working conditions.

Members of the Unison and GMB trade unions are staging staggered walkouts today, with workers not striking for more than 12 hours and call handlers for not more than six-hour periods – and ambulance workers have left picket lines to attend emergencies.

The South West Ambulance Service has urged the public to only dial 999 in cases of life threatening or life altering emergencies.
