The charter is part of the Trade Union Congress’ wider ‘Dying to Work’ campaign, which is seeking greater security for terminally ill workers so they cannot be dismissed as a result of their condition. Patron of the Campaign and GMB member, Jacci Woodcock was also at the signing.

GMB Regional Organiser Colin Todd said “I am delighted that EMAS has signed the Charter. GMB leads put this forward to EMAS when they heard about the campaign and the charter. GMB has a positive relationship with EMAS and this is testament to that.”

Tony Davies, GMB Executive Lead said “It’s great that EMAS are the first Ambulance Trust in the country to sign up to the charter. I hope other Ambulance Trusts follow suit. I will raise it at the next National Ambulance Committee.”
