CUPW has been bargaining with Emergency Medical Care since April of 2019. Talks have been unproductive so far. CUPW is concerned about employer reluctance to bargain as well as the upcoming Fitch and Associates report, whose release has been postponed by the provincial Health Minister.
This bargaining unit represents about 50 members, trained paramedics who coordinate and dispatch ambulances throughout Nova Scotia. Our members are proud that every caller into the Provincial Medical Communications Centre is speaking with a trained paramedic in their time of need, before EHS arrives physically on the scene. We’re the first contact in the team of medical care professionals who help Nova Scotians survive and recover from emergencies.
Emergency services availability, timeliness and quality are at stake. Our members are negotiating to maintain the standard of health care in Nova Scotia and to resist service cutbacks.
