CUPE 4212’s ten members are on strike against Maurice Doucet Ambulance Emergency Medical Services in Kedgwick-Saint-Quentin, New Brunswick.
The emergency medical technicians (EMTs) are demanding wage parity with EMTs employed directly by the province’s hospitals.
“Other private ambulance services obtained pay parity with the hospital EMTs,” said CUPE 4212 president Camille Tremblay. “All ambulance services receive their financing from the government. Why are we treated differently?”
The workers have been without a contract since March 2005.
