Prop 11 - What is it about?

Proposition 11 is an attempt to regulate how workers take breaks.

Right now ambulance companies require workers to remain on call during breaks and Proposition 11 would make that law.

If Proposition 11 fails these companies would be subject to California labor laws concerning “off duty” breaks.

Right now there is a pending lawsuit against one of the biggest private ambulance companies, AMR, regarding break times for ambulance crews.

There was no formal opposition to this proposition filed on the California ballot.

A local ambulance crew reached out to voice its opposition saying in part that this would mean the state would take over in disputes regarding breaks between their ambulance companies and their employers also calling it a “wolf in sheep’s clothing.”

What does my vote mean?

YES: Makes it legal for ambulance companies to require crews to be on call during breaks and be paid for it

NO: Means that in cases of break time disputes the courts would decide and EMT crews would be subject to California labor laws and most likely mean that EMT crews would take “off duty” breaks
