Some UK ambulance, health workers to strike on March 8

LONDON (Reuters) - Ambulance staff and other health workers who are a part of Britain's Unison trade union will take strike action on March 8 in an ongoing pay dispute, the union said on Wednesday.

"We have just announced more strike dates in the NHS. The promise of talks alone won’t be enough for us to suspend these," Unison General Secretary Christina McAnea said on Twitter.

While nurses have paused strike action to enter talks with the British government over pay, the state-run National Health Service still faces a planned walk out next month by tens of thousands of junior doctors in England.
