Jennifer Restle, one of the newest members of the NAGE National Executive Board, has worked as an EMT and paramedic for 17 years. She works with Rural Metro San Diego, the company that handles San Diego’s 9-1-1 calls.
Restle was always involved with her local union, but since June 2014, the local has been with NAGE EMS and she has been its president.
In the few months that her local has been working with NAGE, Restle said that they’ve already seen significant improvements on the job. They had always had difficulty getting management to communicate with the EMT and paramedic unit about issues in fleet and supply. Rather than wait for management to “get its ducks in a row,” Restle said, they asked the fleet and supply employees to join them in the NAGE union local.
“Now our board has a vice president representing supply and fleet and a second vice president representing the paramedics and EMTs. What better way to improve working conditions than to have everyone unite to repair what’s broken? In the little time we’ve been with NAGE we’ve done more to improve our working conditions than we’ve done with any other union. I’m very excited to see how far we can go!”
