Members of the union which represents Cleveland EMS, CARE Local 1975, plan to hold a sit-in the Cleveland City Council meeting on Monday night.
....
But CARE Local 1975 said the city has yet to pay the wage increases because they're planning to appeal the ruling.
We went thought this ~6 years ago, where the state refused to provide us our contract mandated raises. We (the union) had to file lawsuits to compel the state to pay us, and provide us backpay. But there were no penalties, so there was really no incentive for the state to not delay giving us our contact mandating raises. Our union said we should email the chief legal council (who makes 400+k a year), and say " I would recommend you simply say, why are you doing this? If you have children tell him how many children you have and ask him if he knows how difficult it is for you to supply clothing, school books and lunch for them on your wages." useless idiots. Shops stewards were worthless in that fight.

The truth is, the city council and mayor won't care if they protest. protest all you want, it just wastes your (Care 1975) 's time. it won't change anything.

Want change? get an EMS person elected to the council. Want those raises? have the union file suit (again) against the city once the time limit for the judges ruling expires.

or just protest on your own time, because we all know how often that helps EMS people get what they want 🤬
