Will Scottish Tories accuse Humza Yousaf of preventing life-threatening ambulance strike as deal is accepted only by Unison in Scotland?

In the Guardian today:

Ambulance workers across England intend to strike before Christmas after voting in favour of industrial action over pay and staffing levels. Unison, the UK’s biggest trade union, announced the results of its month-long NHS strike ballot and said thousands of 999 call handlers, ambulance technicians, paramedics and their colleagues working for ambulance services in the north-east, north-west, London, Yorkshire and the south-west are to take industrial action.

Health workers belonging to Unison in Northern Ireland have already voted to take action over pay and staffing.

In Scotland, Unison is recommending that its NHS members vote to accept the latest offer from the Scottish government, which will see a £2,205 increase for the lowest-paid staff, and more for those on higher bands.

Will BBC Scotland report this? Not, so far.

Remember NHS Scotland’s ambulance service is already far more responsive than those elsewhere in the UK.

  1. ”That Humza Yousaf is DELIBERATELY paying the Scottish ambulance workers more to settle this pay claim in order to embarrass the rUK Governments ” –
    as Sandy ‘Brylcreem’ Gulhane has not said – yet !

    …and Jackie B. will want him sacked for ”getting on with the day job ”.
