Toronto paramedics don strike t-shirts
By Lisa Queen
TORONTO — Paramedics responding to emergency calls will now be sporting black T-shirts advising they are striking along with other inside and outside city workers.
Paramedics are covered by an essential services agreement that ensures staffing levels remain at about 75 per cent during the strike, on day 19 as of Friday, July 10.
But even as they continue to respond to calls, they will wear the T-shirts that include a crest on the front reading Toronto Civic Employees Union over top of the words "Paramedics on strike." On the back is written "Paramedics" on the first line followed by "We work for you Toronto" and then "CUPE Local 416."
