APA (NSW) Member Update – Condition of Ambulance Stations in NSW

APA (NSW) Member Update

Condition of Ambulance Stations in NSW

Tuesday 12 September 2017

Dear Member,

After months of attempting to work with NSW Ambulance to improve the standard of stations across NSW, APA (NSW) members are frustrated and are considering what we will do next.

Our most recent media appearance prompted NSW Ambulance to ask if we could provide examples of any substandard conditions in NSW Ambulance stations. This question comes after NSW Ambulance has refused to provide a copy of the report it had commissioned to assess the condition of stations across the state.

APA (NSW) Secretary, on behalf of paramedics, has written to Cheif Executive, to address an issue that should be able to be addressed working in collaboration. APA (NSW) believes that paramedics and NSW Ambulance want a world class service, this cannot occur when stations are falling apart, or if NSW Ambulance is actively trying to hide something.

APA (NSW) is always willing to open community with other parties to gain the outcome that paramedics deserve. Should we receive a response from the letter we will keep members informed.

Regards,

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.
