Paramedics lift 'working to rule'

Jersey Ambulance Service
Paramedics lifted the restrictions as a "gesture of goodwill"

Ambulance workers in Jersey have lifted their working restrictions while they negotiate pay and conditions.

Last month they decided to work to contract, which meant they would not come in to help on their days off.

But acting Chief Officer John Sutherland said staff have lifted that decision as a gesture of goodwill while talks continue with the States.

Paramedics are unhappy that some frontline employees are paid less than those who take calls at headquarters.

The service has been in talks with the States for the past two years.

In January, Health Minister Senator Jimmy Perchard said he regretted the action being taken.
