The Employer is offering a hiring bonus as follows:
EMT's, Dispatchers and ATS Drivers will receive a $1,000 hiring bonus paid out in the first year. Paramedics will receive a $2,000 hiring bonus paid out in the first year.
Mohawk employees overwhelmingly voted in a collective bargaining agreement (contract) in 2015 that is effective through 2018.
The contract includes the following:
Annual contract raises
12 and 24 hour work schedules
employer retirement contributions
The bargaining unit consists of nearly 200 UPSEU members. Mohawk has a reputation for generating quality EMT's and Paramedics and they are looking to hire immediately!

With the death of Supreme Court Justice Scalia, the long awaited decision which could have a dramatic negative impact on public employees will now revert to the lower court decision.
The Friedrich case, funded by individuals and organizations that wish to silence the voices and rights of public employees at the bargaining table have therefore been silenced by the 4 to 4 decision. Collective bargaining would have been severely impacted with a vote against public employees and their unions. Before the death of Justice Scalia, a 5-4 decision against public unions was anticipated based on oral arguments before the court.
The decision is clearly a victory for all public employees!
With 95% of the membership voting in a secret ballot election for UPSEU, the Trumbull DPW employees sent a clear message to AFSCME that they deserved better by voting UPSEU.
The Trumbull DPW employees joined their DPW Supervisor contemporaries in joining UPSEU, as the DPW Supervisors voted just 2 weeks ago in a similar election. Ironically, both of these units were previously represented by AFSCME.
We welcome the Trumbull DPW Employees to the UPSEU family!
