Gold Cross Ambulance employees expected to vote on job action
ST. GEORGE, Utah (FOX13) – Paramedics in southern Utah are preparing for a potential strike. Unionized Gold Cross Ambulance workers say the company has treated them unfairly since they started working there two years ago, and they said they are fed up.
State officials granted Gold Cross an exclusive license to St. George 911 calls in 2013. The employees unionized with Teamsters Local 222 last year and say negotiations with the company, headquartered in Salt Lake City, have failed to produce results.
