More than 100 workers with seven private ambulance services in rural Newfoundland walked off the job at noon Friday.

Teamsters Local 855 leader Hubert Dawe says it came after a hostile act by an employer against a union member. The companies cover areas from Fogo Island on the northeast coast to Trepassey on the southern shore of the Avalon to Stephenville on the west coast.
