(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.
