APA (NSW) Member Update – Check your pay rates

APA (NSW) Member Update

Check your pay 

Friday 12 January 2018

Dear Member,

APA (NSW) would like to remind members that it is important to ensure that you always check your pay slips for all entitlements including pay rates, especially when asked to undertake roles beyond your standard scope.

APA (NSW) have been assisting members that have been paid incorrectly, at a lower rate than the duties they have been directed to complete by NSW Ambulance. The most recent example of this is where paramedics have been asked to perform the duties of a CTO by conducting 4WD training, but not received the appropriate compensation.

Following advocacy from APA (NSW) on behalf of its members NSW Ambulance has agreed that staff should be paid for the work they do when acting in higher roles and is working to ensure that back payment is made to affected staff.

Please ensure that you check your payslips and speak to your local delegates with any concerns.


APA (NSW) Executive

Still No Uniform Solutions from NSW Ambulance

NSW Ambulance (NSWA) continues to bury their head in the sand when it comes to our uniform.
The current polyester uniform, including the short-sleeved shirt, has been causing work health and safety concerns for several members in hot and/or humid climates. This is unacceptable.

Paramedics take action against public sector wage cut

Today the Australian Paramedics Association (NSW) are commencing industrial action to stand against the announced wage cut by the Premier. For months, Paramedics and other essential workers put our lives and the lives of our families at risk to look after the people of New South Wales during the COVIID-19 Pandemic.

APA (NSW) appalled by NSW Premier plan to freeze our wages

The NSW Premier’s announcement to freeze the pay of public sector workers for 12 months is disgraceful. Paramedics and our frontline colleagues have been used, yet again, as scapegoats for this Government. We are praised as heroes for our hard work, and in the same breath served a pay cut that will ultimately send our wages backwards.
