Unite the Union Ballot Result

27 January 2014

Ian Brandwood, Executive Director of People and Engagement at Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust, said:

“We are disappointed with the Unite the Union ballot result. There is no mandate for strike action with only 40% turnout from Unite members; only 150 people participated in the vote from our total workforce of over 4,600.

“Strike action is certainly not in the best interests of our patients and it reflects the thoughtless conduct of Unite.

“We would like to reassure members of the public that Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust is committed to minimising the level of disruption to its services during any periods of industrial action and we have robust contingency plans in place to ensure we continue to provide responsive, effective and safe services for our patients.”
