SIPTU members in the HSE National Ambulance Service including advanced paramedics, emergency medical technicians, controllers and patient transport service professionals are to ballot for strike action over the refusal by the HSE to implement two binding Labour Court recommendations.

SIPTU Health Division Organiser, Paul Bell said: “We have been given no alternative but to ballot for strike action.”

He said not only was SIPTU concerned over the failure to implement the Labour Court recommendations, but it was “also of concern that the Health Service Oversight Body formed to oversee the implementation of the Haddington Road Agreement”.

Balloting of SIPTU members will commence nationwide on Friday, June 27 and will be completed within three weeks.
