NAGE EMS Welcomes Rural/Metro San Diego

NAGE EMS would like to congratulate the EMS professionals of Rural/Metro San Diego who recently voted overwhelmingly in favor to join the union.

“We are very proud to welcome these new members to our union,” said NAGE EMS National Representative Shelly Hudelson. “We are looking forward to working with these individuals and to see what we can do for them at the bargaining table.”

As the premier ambulance provider in California's San Diego County, Rural/Metro provides the area with over 500 employees and a fleet over 80 ambulances.

“These men and women deserve to negotiate their own contract and better their future as EMS professionals,” said NAGE EMS National Director Phil Petit. “We are happy to see these members take an active role in their workplace through their vote to unionize and we look forward to making them a stronger force.”

Congratulations to these new members on becoming the latest addition to the growing NAGE EMS family. If you are interested in organizing your workplace with NAGE EMS please contact Shelly Hudelson at 619-240-5573 or via email at
