Teamsters ratify four-year contract at AMR


Members of Teamsters Portland Local 223 and Vancouver Local 58 ratified a new four-year collective bargaining agreement at American Medical Response (AMR). The 450-member bargaining unit provides ambulance service to Multnomah and Clackamas counties in Oregon, and Clark and Cowlitz counties in Washington.

The agreement is retroactive to July 1, 2014, when the old pact expired. The new pact runs through June 30, 2018.

Local 223 union rep Dave Tully said the contract preserves health care benefits and cost-of-living wage increases.

AMR has been union since 1989.
