Rural Metro Ambulance EMTs and Paramedics deserve a fair contract!

The EMTs and Paramedics of Rural Metro Ambulance that respond to the emergencies for the residents of Rochester and Monroe County demand a fair contract! These selfless trained professionals come to the aid of those in need any time of the day or night regardless of the risk or weather conditions. They work long hours and make personal sacrifices, to place the safety and well being of their friends and neighbors above their own every day. They demand a fair contract to be able to support themselves and their families. What Rural Metro has offered so far is not even enough to keep up with the rising cost of living and healthcare. Please show your support for us by signing this petition and sharing it with your friends and neighbors. Thank you.


Larry Onderdonk, Chairman Rural Metro SEIU Local-200


  • Jason Friday Rural Metro is as greedy a corporation as they come. The general manager himself has made it clear that he would rather have a high turnover rate than seasoned employees as it ultimately costs him much less. If fast food workers can demand livable wages then it only seems fair that those who come to our aid during our worst hour should be able to make ends meet and support their families as well. A 10 year former employee I can also tell you firsthand that no one gets shit on harder or more consistently than Rural Metro Rochester employees, being held over hours every day, mandated shifts and Supervisors who play favorites and treat the facility and the company like their own personal playground result in a work environment deserving of better recognition, pay and benefits.

  • Samuel D Tinelli a fair wage with protection from bullying and targeting is not to much to ask for. I only want to be able to afford to go home each day to a family I can support without having to work 2 jobs or 80 hours a week.

  • Patrick S. Riley If we don't get the respect from the public at least we should get appropriate respect from our employers.
