☑ Union Membership
The Local I-60, a local of the International Association of Firefighters, was established and chartered in 1992, and has successfully and faithfully represented its members for 22 years. Representing over 800 EMTs, Paramedics and Registered Nurses who provide emergency services to communities throughout Arizona, the Local I-60 was founded to collectively bargain for fair wages, hours, and working conditions while improving the EMS profession.
From top to bottom, industry to industry, region to region, union wages are roughly 15 per cent higher than non-union wages.
Pensions, insurance, vacation, holidays, sick pay, overtime and premium pay are generally not only better in a union shop, often the only way to obtain them is through a union contract.
The safety record of union facilities is demonstrably superior to that of non-union facilities.
Job Security & Stability
As a union worker you don’t have to put up with flaky bosses, arbitrary decisions, or co-worker harassment.
