Fear over 999 crew walkout.

Byline: By IAN GRAHAM

NORTHERN Ireland was last night threatened with an ambulance staff strike.

Trade union Unison said its Ambulance Service branch shop stewards committee was seeking permission to hold a ballot on industrial action.

They were doing so because of "the breakdown of industrial relations between Unison and the management of the Ambulance Service."

Lily Kerr, head of bargaining and representation at the union, said: "Local Unison representatives, members and full-time officials have become increasingly frustrated at what they see as management's anti-Unison stand."

The Northern Ireland Ambulance Service (NIAS) said it was disappointed to learn of the threat to ballot for industrial action.

It added: "NIAS management has not adopted an anti-Unison stance."
