Teamsters, Area Unions Rally in Support of Rural/Metro Workers

Paramedics, EMTs Calling for Fair Wages

BUFFALO, N.Y., April 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Hundreds of union members joined Teamsters Local 375 this morning for a rally in front of Buffalo's city hall in support of Rural/Metro paramedics and Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) who are calling for fair wages from the company.

Rural/Metro has an exclusive, and very profitable, 911 service contract with the city of Buffalo. However, the company has not been a good corporate citizen since it is denying its employees a fair wage.

"We should have a basic level of accountability in Buffalo, when private companies seek to perform public services," said Mike Wach, principal officer of Teamsters Local 375 and the bargaining agent for workers employed by Rural/Metro Medical Services. "When profits are being made off the citizens of Buffalo by companies like Rural/Metro, paying fair wages for paramedics, intermediates and emergency medical technicians must take priority over executive bonuses."

Teamsters Local 375 represents 400 Rural/Metro paramedics and EMTs who have been working without a contract since their five-year agreement expired on June 30, 2008. Negotiations are set to resume on Monday, April 27.

Founded in 1903, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters represents more than 1.4 million hardworking men and women in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.
