Unison, which represents most Yorkshire Ambulance Service staff, said Under Armour Micro G Limitless Tr 2 it was "deeply concerned over the enforced changes".
Unite has been embroiled in the long running dispute over various issues, including now the sending of Emergency Care Assistants out in ambulances without paramedics.
David Whiting, chief executive at Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust, said: "ECAs are operating well within their capability following their training and this development is also consistent with how other ambulance services operate across the country.
