(ST. LOUIS) – Sixty-eight dispatchers and call takers of Abbott Ambulance, an American Medical Response (AMR)-owned company, voted overwhelmingly in favor of joining Teamsters Local 610 on Nov. 22. The vote was 45-to-13 in favor of Teamster representation.
The workers do the dispatch for multiple Abbott locations throughout the Midwest. The workers’ concerns include ending favoritism, gaining fair pay and improved benefits, job security, and ending the hostile work environment.
