The Unison and GMB unions have called off ambulance strikes in England after what was described as a "huge shift" in the government's position.

Tens of thousands of staff were expected to walk out on 6 March and 8 March across large parts of England.

That action has been suspended after ministers agreed to reopen pay talks for both this and next financial year.

The government welcomed the move, but said it was "disappointing" a third union still planned to strike.

Unite, the smallest of the three ambulance unions representing approximately 3,000 workers, said its strike on 6 March would go ahead.

Industrial action has also been paused in Wales[/size] for further talks with the Welsh government.

In Scotland, all NHS worker strikes are on hold too.
All that's necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing
