Paramedics to stage another 26-hour strike


SOME paramedics at Warrington are again staging a 26-hour strike over the weekend as part of the long-running pay dispute affecting the whole of the region.
They are members of the GMB union and the stoppage begins at 6am tomorrow and will continue until 8am  on Sunday.
North West Ambulance Service paramedics have already staged six strikes in recent weeks after a ballot of members saw more than 84 per cent of those who responded vote for strike action.
GMB understands more than 130 calls were awaiting a resource with none to send following industrial action last Saturday.
The union criticised the service after a planned in-person crunch meeting with the NWAS last week did not take place, leaving the long-running dispute unresolved.
GMB has pledged to continue the strikes until they are assured NWAS has a genuine commitment to find a resolution to the long-running pay dispute.
The union represents more than a quarter of NWAS paramedics.
