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.
