Ambulance employees threaten to strike

(Gold Cross Ambulance employees could walk)….Union officials say the employees are ready to strike.

The labor action would be mid-night Sunday if a strike is called. Employees are upset with their wages and other benefits. The latest round of negotiations was held in San Diego. Indications are the offers made there were unacceptable. If the Ambulance employees, including paramedics, do walk, there are contingencies in place to ensure ambulance service is provided for the Imperial County. There is a mutual aide agreement with the Yuma County ambulance service, as well as other plans.
