Yorkshire Ambulance staff end two-year dispute
Ambulance staff have agreed to end a long-running dispute over working arrangements after nearly two years of industrial action.
The Unite union has held a series of strikes since April 2013 claiming new shift patterns could affect safety.
In a joint statement, Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) and Unite said an agreement had been reached to re-recognise the union.
It stated they were "working together to safeguard patient safety".
The statement said: "Both parties are resolved to settle all outstanding issues and return immediately to a normalised working relationship.
"The priority of both YAS and Unite is to ensure the delivery of a first-class ambulance service for the people of Yorkshire and Humberside.
"Both YAS and Unite are now looking forward to forging a new relationship based on mutual respect and a commitment to the people of Yorkshire and Humberside."
The deal follows the resignation of YAS chief executive David Whiting last November.
