The PNA has warned that it may stage more ambulance strikes if the Health Service Executive does not engage on its right to represent members.

The dispute centres on the Health Services’s refusal to recognise the PNA…

…The HSE said that recognising yet another union would impair good industrial relations within the National Ambulance Service

    “…The HSE said that recognising yet another union would impair good industrial relations within the National Ambulance Service”

    Are the workers not entitled to decide which union represents them?

      Except the HSE *have* been effectively recognising the union. They were collecting subs and passing them on via the payroll, according to the rep on Morning Ireland today. The HSE appear to have taken a unilateral decision to cease this arrangement.
