Today 200 of our AMR brothers and sisters in Washington D.C. voted overwhelmingly to join AFSCME, despite Bennelli being there in person to union bust. While they will not be part of 4911 we are still 200 voices closer to commanding the presence WE need to drive the future of EMS. Please join me in welcoming DC into the fold.

More than 400 emergency medical services (EMS) professionals at Falck Northern California have won their election to join United EMS Workers-AFSCME Local 4911, a victory that will strengthen their efforts to improve the services they provide to their communities.

The ballots were counted at the National Labor Relations Board office here Monday, revealing a union victory despite the private company’s attempts to divide and discourage employees. Workers joined AFSCME seeking more accountability and respect and, most importantly, a greater commitment to patient care and safety.

We are pleased to inform you that on Thursday June 1st, the California State Assembly approved AB 263. This requires contracted private sector EMS employers to provide adequate rest and meal breaks to service providers. It will reduce some of the chronic stress that has been shown to lead to higher rates of mental health issues for EMS professionals. The bill also requires the California Emergency Medical Services Authority to produce a report in January of 2019 and annually thereafter on workplace violence faced by EMS workers.
