MORE than 15,000 ambulance workers across 11 trusts in England and Wales have started voting on potential strike action in a dispute over pay reports the BBC.
The GMB union said workers were angry at a pay award of 4% which it described as a “massive real terms pay cut”.
Emergency callouts would not be affected by any action, it added.
The government, which said it had given pay rises to more than a million workers, is urging ambulance staff to consider the impact on patients.

I wish them a successful conclusion to their strike. Try walking past the ambulance entrance to A&E at PAH on a busy evening and have a close look at the expression on the faces of the ambulance workers. You will see the despondency in their faces. It is heartbreaking to see. They need to be treated better.
