AMEA Local 16

As New York City became the epicenter of the global coronavirus pandemic, emergency medical services (EMS) professionals, including 

During Law Enforcement Week, we honor public safety officers who paid the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty.

Roxie Nelson remembers her father, Ed Nelson, as a caring and passionate man who often put the needs of others before his own.

Editor’s note: The following is a story from the front lines of the fight against COVID-19, as told by a member in Washington state:

Sisters and brothers,

Your union has been working tirelessly to coordinate with the MOA and ensure that AMEA workers are protected while we face the health and economic crisis arising from COVID-19.

Last week, AMEA was assured that MOA leadership wants no worker to face a negative economic impact due to the measures we must take to stay safe, but to date no action other than "use your leave or take LWOP" has been taken for most workers.

They need to know how badly forcing employees to deplete leave balances and take LWOP is impacting our ability to curb the spread of the virus. Please read, sign, and share this petition to as many people as you can.

If we all band together, we can get these changes made. Remember that we make Anchorage happen, and that we must stay healthy if we want to continue to serve the citizens of our great Municipality during this crisis.


Thank you,
Brandon Fifer
President, AMEA Local 16
