Calgary - Paramedics say that they want their dispute with the City of Calgary resolved as soon as possible. A government appointed mediator is still working with the parties and paramedics say anything Clint Dunford can do to get a fair negotiated settlement would be welcomed.

At the present time we don’t know what the Mr. Dunford has in mind, said Bruce Robb.

The City knows that our members want a settlement that reflects the increases accepted by other heath care practitioners across the province. All we want is a fair, negotiated settlement and anything the Minister can do to speed this up would be okay with us.

Paramedics have served notice that a legal job action will commence on Saturday, October 21. From Saturday on, EMS staff will stop taking the billing information from their patients. This will cost the employer without affecting patients medically in any way.

Hopefully, this will be enough, said Robb.


For more information please call Bruce Robb at 263-5883 or Susan Ruffo at 861-6496
