Strikers to vote on latest offer

(Gold Cross makes an offer)….Employees of the Ambulance service have been on strike since July 28th.

Since walking out, the employees and Gold Cross management have met twice with a mediator, but to no avail. The latest negotiation was this week in Glendale. After that session ended without an agreement, management submitted a proposal. The striking employees and their union, Teamsters Local 542, are reportedly discussing the proposal. They will take a vote in response to the offer. The employees say they want a pay increase, more reliable equipment and protected benefits. Details of the new offer have not been revealed.
