Budget Subcommittee at City Hall – January 22, 2024

Local 416 Secretary Treasurer, Domenic Maugeri, stressing the importance to City Council in investing in the worker during his Budget Deputation on Monday, January 22, 2024.

Domenic advocated for Council to “invest in the worker the same way they do in tech and infrastructure, and that retention of the worker should be top priority.”

Local 416 Paramedic Chair, Mike Merriman, ringing the alarm bells at his public deputation at Budget Committee about the dire state of paramedic services due to years of under investing.

“This has prompted me to speak up for not only my members I represent but the patients that they serve. We are witnessing an alarming and unprecedent level of paramedic resignations.”
