Several Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) of the Guyana Fire and Rescue Service are considering going on strike over an ongoing issue regarding a one-month bonus and salary increases.
According to sources within the organization, the EMTs have been negotiating with the Guyana Fire and Rescue Service management for several months but have yet to resolve. The EMTs have reportedly been seeking a one-month bonus and a salary increase, but their demands have not been met.
As a result, the EMTs are now considering taking industrial action, which could disrupt the vital services the Guyana Fire and Rescue Service provides.
The Guyana Fire and Rescue Service is responsible for providing emergency medical care and transport to individuals in need. A strike by the EMTs could have severe consequences for the organization and the people it serves.
It is unclear when or if the EMTs will go on strike, but the Ministry of Public Health and the Guyana Public Service Union closely monitor the situation.
