IAEP - NAGE
The International Association of EMTs and Paramedics (IAEP) is a more than 12,000-member-strong labor union comprised entirely of EMS professionals. 80+ IAEP locals in more than 25 states operate with complete autonomy while benefiting from strong national representation backed by advanced resources, unlimited access to professional labor representatives, top-notch attorneys, contract negotiators experienced in EMS, and dedicated support staff.
As a division of NAGE, our members also benefit from the power of an extended union family active in both legislative labor efforts nationwide and the international labor movement. The IAEP motto has always been, “Members First” – making our members and their families our highest priority.
The National Association of Government Employees (NAGE) is an organization of members united by the belief in the dignity and worth of workers and the services they provide. We are dedicated to improving the lives of workers and their families and creating a more just and humane society.
We are public and private workers—federal, state, county, and municipal employees—police officers, firefighters, correctional officers, health care workers—nurses, paramedics, and emergency medical technicians—office workers, and professional workers. We seek a stronger union to build power for ourselves and to protect the people we serve.
Women and men of every race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, age, physical ability and sexual orientation, we are the standard-bearers in the struggle for social and economic justice begun nearly half a century ago by shipyard workers who dared to dream beyond their daily hardships and to organize for economic security, dignity and respect.
