Welsh Lib Dems call for action to avoid ambulance workers strike

Welsh Liberal Democrat Leader Jane Dodds MS raised the decision by thousands of ambulance workers and other NHS staff to strike on December 21 today in the Senedd, calling for action to be taken by the Welsh Government to avoid the strike and for the Welsh Government to come forward with a statement to the Senedd on how the emergency cover is going to be maintained during the strike, which is one of the NHS’ busiest periods.

 

Commenting Jane Dodds said:

 

“As industrial action goes, this is possibly the most alarming in terms of the potential risk to life.

“Nobody takes strike action lightly, least of all those in our health service. This shows just how desperate health workers are amid pressures on pay, but also on working conditions.

“The Welsh Labour Government must negotiate with the unions in order to reach a fair compromise and ensure life-saving services operate at full capacity during the winter.”
