Ambulance Employees Want 30% Increase

Earning $35.75 Hour is Not Enough!

CUPE wants their members working in the ambulance service field to get a 30% wage increase this March to give them parity with Vancouver police and firefighters. They hope to gain public support for their demands and will probably take a strike vote in the next two weeks.

Editor's Comment:
It is time that members of the public service woke up to the current economic reality and consider themselves fortunate to have a job. Do you think it would be hard to fill these $35/hr jobs if you offered free training to unemployed forest workers?
