Joint Statement between NHS ambulance Trusts in England and UNISON, GMB and Unite
Ambulance employers and trade unions have been in negotiations to resolve differences in the application of unsocial hours allowances during sickness absence.
At a meeting on 4 April, Employers made a proposal that was considered by the trade unions. At a joint meeting today (29 April) the trade unions reported that this proposal fell short of expectation.
The parties reiterated their commitment to constructive talks on the issue and have therefore agreed to take time out from the talks to reflect on this position and consider next steps.
