EL CENTRO, CA (13 On Your Side) - Labor negotiations between Gold Cross and the union representing paramedics in Imperial Valley - continued this week - but still no deal.
The union says both sides are hammering out details. Paramedics want a $1 pay raise and better health benefits.
Gold Cross and the paramedic's union are still far apart in reaching a new labor agreement.
However, union president, Phil Farias, tells 13 On Your Side: both sides are slowly making progress.
13 On Your Side has learned - during the last round of negotiations - Gold Cross and the union discussed making improvements in personnel issues, including building better relationships between management and paramedics in addressing disciplinary action.
We asked union representative Phil Farias - how much longer he expects negotiations to take place.
"We don't put a time frame on that stuff. Like I've told you before, as long as progress keeps being made I'll keep moving. When we come to that wall that we cant break through, then at that point we're going to have to take our position and say 'Okay, if we cant get you to move, company, then we're gonna have to take a strike at you.'"
Again, paramedics want a dollar pay raise from $9 an hour to $10, better health care benefits, and upgraded vehicles.
Gold Cross and the paramedic's union will meet again June 24th .
Paramedic's union says they do not have plans to strike for now.
