Ambulance strike called off after deal reached

A planned strike by some St John paramedics and ambulance workers has been called off.

Hundreds of St John staff who are First Union members had been preparing to walk off the job for 24 hours tomorrow over failed pay negotiations.

First Union now says a pay agreement has been reached.
