Ambulance paramedics and dispatchers in British Columbia have reached a tentative contract with the provincial government after mediated negotiations.

A B.C. union leader says a tentative contract agreement for ambulance paramedics and ambulance dispatchers will strengthen the province’s health services.

Troy Clifford, Ambulance Paramedics of B.C. president, says the proposed settlement will see a much needed and renewed commitment to the ambulance service, paramedics, dispatchers and patients.

The Health Employers Association of B.C. and the Ambulance Paramedics and Ambulance Dispatchers Bargaining Association reached the tentative deal on the weekend with the help of mediator Vince Ready.


The details of the proposed settlement, which must be ratified by the paramedics and dispatchers, were not released.
