Bc Ambulance Service Collective Agreement 2017

B.C. Emergency Health Services has also introduced a new dispatch protocol for 9-1-1 calls, which has proven controversial in some communities. Implemented in response to an increase in non-emergency calls such as injury-free vehicle accidents, it allows available paramedics to prioritize, and allows paramedics to treat and release patients instead of putting everyone in a hospital emergency. B.C. Paramedics have been working without a union contract since April 1, 2019. (Black Press Media files) The new three-year collective agreement is the first stand-alone and conventional contract for BC paramedics and distributors since 2004. It includes general wage increases of 2.0 per cent per year, hundreds of new regular medical jobs across the province, and a series of new health and safety initiatives. The big change lies in the implementation of ”rural paramedicine”, an approach initiated by the previous government in 2017, in which part-time and on-call paramedics benefit from full-time work including home visits and work with nursing homes in small municipalities. Rural paramedicine was launched in the spring of 2017 as a pilot project in Tofino, Ucluelet, Port Hardy, Cortes Island, Fort St. James, Hazelton, Chetwynd, Creston and Princeton. It was implemented in 70 municipalities where it was difficult to hire and retain on-call or part-time paramedics. APADBA believes that this agreement constitutes the positive relationship between the parties at the negotiating table and provides a solid basis from which continued growth will ensure the future of medical services in BC.
