About the Local
We are a local bargaining unit of approximately 900 members, and growing, serving communities in Westchester County, the Northern Bronx and the Hudson Valley, New York. Our members are EMS professionals who work tirelessly to serve their neighbors and community by providing high quality medical care in the 911, inter-facility and critical care settings.
Our union strives to faithfully represent our members and continuously advocate for better working conditions, better treatment and better pay for not only our members, but for all EMS professionals. We provide representation to our members facing discipline, advocate for policy changes that improve conditions, and negotiate collective bargaining agreements (CBAs), with the support of our National union IAEP, a subsidiary of NAGE.
From our National Union:
The International Association of EMT s and Paramedics (IAEP) is an EMT / Paramedic Union, a 12,000-member-strong EMS union working every day for EMS professionals. Our motto at IAEP is simple—we put “Members First.” Members want a locally controlled EMS only union that also has national strength and clout. With the IAEP, locals have complete autonomy but also benefit from the strong representation provided by IAEP, with national resources, unlimited access to professional EMS experienced labor representatives, top-notch attorneys, professional contract negotiators, and support staff.
