It was the pay offer of the Labour Government in Cardiff Bay that was rejected
Commenting, Welsh Conservative Shadow Health Minister Russell George MS said:
“It is disappointing to see some unions vote to strike meaning we will see ambulance service staff stop working during the winter.
“But let there be no doubt that, in Wales, it was the pay offer of the Labour Government in Cardiff Bay that was rejected – anybody, including unions, that seek to lay the blame at the door of someone else is doing the public and striking workers an injustice.
“Nurses have already voted to strike in all but one health board in Wales and it is astonishing the Labour Health Minister has still not met with them to negotiate – hopefully the case won’t be the same for ambulance workers.
“Patients and staff need action from the Labour Government to bring this situation to a swift and fair resolution and I urge them get around the negotiating table now.”
