Santa Clara County’s Ambulance Provider, Workers Union Agree to Two-Year Contract
Last week, Rural/Metro -- a private ambulance provider serving Santa Clara County -- and Santa Clara County's emergency medical service union workers agreed on a two-year contract that improves safety conditions and restores or increases salaries for many emergency medical technicians and paramedics. In August, the ambulance company filed for bankruptcy reorganization. Rural/Metro's West Zone Senior Vice President John Wilson said he hopes the company's financial restructuring plans will be approved next month by a bankruptcy court.
