Yorkshire ambulance staff say, give us a break

Issue No. 2386

Yorkshire ambulance staff could strike against changes to their shift patterns.

The changes would see paramedics working for ten hours without a meal break.

The Unite union is balloting some 450 workers for action.

It wants protected meal breaks of 30 minutes after six hours. The ballot ends on Friday of next week.
