Today's  protest will initiate a new campaign of  escalating industrial action with two 24 hour strikes in the coming weeks,  with  one taking place in the week beginning 27 th   May, and the second in the week beginning 3rd June.

Peter Hughes, PNA General Secretary said PNA ambulance branch members were again bringing their protest to Leinster House to ensure that politicians hear the strength of resolve and determination that the members  have to secure the basic right to join and  be represented by a recognised trade union.

This is especially so when the HSE has refused invitations to the WRC and calls from across the political divide to recognise the wishes of ambulance personnel and end this unnecessary dispute.
