HSE Refuse To Comment On When Investigation Into Suspension Of Cork Paramedics Will Take Place

Two ambulance crew based in Macroom were suspended in May last year after they stood themselves down on health and safety grounds following a 12 hour shift. 

Both crew members were put on administrative leave and basic pay.

The Echo reports that a member of the Ambulance Service said the crew are being punished for being members of the National Ambulance Service Representative Association, which is a branch of the PNA. 

Ambulance crews who are part of the PNA have staged a number of work stoppages in a dispute over union recognition
