Pro Med Joins IAEP

On Friday, June 29, 2018, over 100 EMS professionals at ProMed Ambulance in Muskegon, Michigan voted overwhelmingly to join the International Association of EMTs and Paramedics (IAEP).
 
“This is just the latest example of employees who recognize that the best way to further their interests is through solidarity in union membership.  This highlights that the work the IAEP does is important and vital to our members and their families,” said National Executive Vice President James Farley.
 
Pro Med provides ALS, BLS, and community based emergency medical services to the communities within the Muskegon County, Michigan.
 
Michael Linville, the IAEP lead organizer who worked closely with the group to make them a part of the IAEP family, is looking forward to the next step. “We’re excited to get to the bargaining table and for our new members to gain the voice they deserve in the workplace,” said Linville.
 
The IAEP is also looking forwarding to working with the new members and their management team to raise the standard for EMS in their area. “We’re happy the EMS professionals at Pro Med can finally gain access to the resources and benefits of union membership,” said IAEP National Director Phil Petit.
 
Please join us in congratulating the EMTs, paramedics, and dispatchers at Pro Med.
