Ambulance personnel who are members of the Psychiatric Nurses Association will protest outside Leinster House this afternoon, as part of their campaign to be represented by the union of their choice.

PNA ambulance personnel have already staged strikes at a number of ambulance bases in Co Mayo in recent weeks in their dispute with the HSE over union recognition.

The NASRA branch of the PNA represents upto 500 ambulance staff, but the HSE has refused to recognise the union for negotiating purposes.

This afternoon's protest outside the Dáil will mark a new campaign of escalating industrial action, with two 24-hour strikes scheduled to take place in the coming weeks - once in the week beginning 27th May, and the second the following week.
