MAJORCAN ambulance drivers yesterday warned that a January strike in protest over poor and ageing working conditions is looking increasingly likely.
The CC.OO union's spokesperson for medical transport, Juan Pons, issued the warning yesterday during a protest outside the ambulance co-ordination centre in the centre of Palma. Pons said that the island's ambulance co-ordination system is “ancient” and, unless the health service takes steps to update and modernise the system, the island's five ambulance services will take industrial action next month. He said that the Balearic health service, IB Salut, is primarily to blame for the out-of-date system.
A number of flash protests are going to be carried out in Manacor and Inca over the next ten days.
