Medics' Union Files Complaint Over Concealed Camera

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. -- Contract talks between an ambulance company and its medics were jolted last week when union negotiators said they found a small surveillance camera hidden in a smoke detector in a conference room at American Medical Response's regional office in West Hartford.

The discovery of the camera, which was plugged into an outlet that was concealed by ceiling tiles, led the union the National Emergency Medical Services Association to file a federal unfair-labor-practice complaint. West Hartford police are also investigating.

A union news release described the incident as "a new low" for AMR, a national company that provides ambulance service in Greater Hartford, the New Haven area, and other Connecticut locations.
