|United EMS Workers-AFSCME Local 4911|
While HVA has made some recent changes because of our organizing campaign, we know that without the backing of a union, and a binding contract, there's nothing stopping HVA from taking these changes away.
Trish is voting YES for AFSCME because the safety of all of us on the road is on the line. Only by standing united together can we get a real seat at the table and the respect we deserve.
EMS Labor Alliance
The Emergency Medical Services Labor Alliance was established over twenty-five years ago as an information sharing network of organized EMS providers across the country. Founding organizations include Detroit EMS, Boston EMS, Cleveland EMS, FDNY-EMS, New Castle County EMS, and Pittsburgh EMS. At the Spring 2009 EMSLA Conference, the Board of Directors unanimously voted to amend the by-laws and allow both private and municipal union EMS workers to join EMSLA.
EMSLA is able to effectively increase communication between stand alone municipal and private EMS groups globally, to enhance collaborative efforts among these groups, support legislation critical to the needs of Emergency Medical Services, and protect EMT’s and Paramedics around the world.
