Drivers and patient monitors at Travois Medical Transfer in Ottawa are days away from a strike over their first contract.
The 60 specialized workers monitor patients and move them by ambulance between hospitals and other health care facilities in Eastern Ontario.
They are members of CUPE 4000.
They’re in bargaining for their first contract, trying to change a workplace where the employer has demanded sixty hour work weeks and refused to pay overtime.
They’re looking for a reasonable wage and decent working conditions.
Please send a message to Travois management to get them to settle with the people providing this important medical service.
