Almost 1,500 GMB Union ambulance workers across Yorkshire will walk out on Monday, February 6.

Paramedics, emergency care assistants, call handlers and other staff at Yorkshire Ambulance Service will stage pickets across the county, including at Wakefield Ambulance Station on Brindley Way.

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