Assemblymember Rodriguez will be joined by members of the Assembly Committee on Health and the Assembly Committee on Labor and Employment, the UC Berkeley Labor Center, and EMS workers.
Assemblymember Rodriguez said the following: “Today, EMS workers across the state don’t have adequate rest and meal breaks, protections against violence in the workplace, or access to mental health care. As a legislator and EMT of over 30 years, I am obligated and proud to stand up and speak out for thousands of hard working individuals who are integral to our healthcare system. The EMS Workers Bill of Rights will make meaningful changes to the emergency service worker industry.”
