There was a lively picket line of ambulance workers outside St George’s hospital in Tooting, south London on 1 November. The GMB members are in dispute with their employer G4S (who run the outsourced service) because their pay and conditions are now inferior to other NHS workers.
Scandalously, two of the union reps have been suspended by the company. It is apt that the first strike was on the very day that the trust was placed in ‘special measures’.
