On Tuesday ambulance workers in the South East are to strike which is part of Unite’s “escalation strategy” aimed at putting pressure on the government.
Members of Unite from South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Trust and South Central Ambulance Service NHS Trust will strike from 12pm until 10pm.
Unite general secretary Sharon Graham said, “The Government must reopen negotiations to ensure that a proper wage offer is made to NHS workers.
“We have always said that a non-consolidated lump sum for 22/23 would not cut it. So it has turned out.
“The current offer does nothing to resolve the recruitment and retention crisis crippling the NHS.
“The strike action by our South East ambulance workers is part of Unite’s escalation strategy to exert greater pressure on the Government.”
