AMR, EMT Employees Go Back To Work

New agreement ends three day strike.

It all began last Sunday, after the International Association of Emergency Medical Technicians and Paramedics (IAEP) and the American Medical Response (AMR) couldn’t come to an agreement on a number of growing concerns. 

 

Although the two organizations had discussed salary increases and health care costs, no agreement was made.  This prompted both EMT and AMR employees to go on strike.

 

But Santa Clarita wasn’t left empty handed.  During the strike, out of the area AMR personnel handled any local emergencies.

 

IAEP National Director Matthew Levy said that after three days of picketing, the IAEP and the AMR have agreed on a compromise. AMR and EMT employees will receive a five percent yearly increase, totaling to twenty percent over the next four years.  Also included in the agreement, AMR will not make any changes to employees’ health care benefits through 2008.
