Ambulance Strikes to go Ahead after Talks Fall Short

Published 9th January 2023 by Dan Roizer

The public expects the Government to treat these talks seriously – it’s time they got on with it, says GMB Union

More than 10,000 ambulance workers will go on strike as planned on Wednesday (11 January) despite talks with Health Secretary today [Monday], GMB Union has said.

Rachel Harrison, GMB National Secretary, said:

“Today’s talks fell well short of anything substantial that could stop this week’s strikes.

“There was some engagement on pay – but not a concrete offer that could help resolve this dispute and make significant progress on the recruitment and retention crisis.

“The public expects the Government to treat these talks seriously – it’s time they got on with it.”
