Seattle EMTs set to strike next week if contract not reached
SEATTLE -- Ambulance response could be disrupted late next week unless emergency medical technicians and their employer, American Medical Response, come to an agreement on a contract. On Nov. 3, the EMTs' union voted 310-46 to reject the latest offer by AMR and to go on strike. City officials, however, are hoping both parties get back to the negotiating table before a strike deadline of 12 p.m. Friday, Dec. 21.
