Fears of ambulance work stoppage next Monday

There are fears that ambulance services in the North West could be affected by an industrial dispute next Monday.

The row is between SIPTU members in the ambulance sector and the National Ambulance Service over a number of issues, including rostering.

A work stoppage in the ambulance service is now planned for Monday next from 8am in the morning until midday.

However, contingency arrangements and emergency cover will be agreed and provided.
