We refer to our previous member update with respect to action taken by Control Centre Staff as a result of NSWA’s failure to provide adequate uniforms in accordance with the Award.
NSWA has now given the following commitment for processing of uniforms for Control Centre Staff:
Given initial processing dates have now been provided & NSWA has conceded to the significance of the issue, APA (NSW) delegates have determined in good faith to hold off on action proposed for time being.
NSWA has also indicated wiliness of their management to work with individuals to put in measures to deal with inadequate uniforms and sharing of uniform items. Please get in touch with management if you are one of the individuals affected. APA (NSW) will always support members who carry out necessary measures to deal with work health and safety issues surrounding inadequate uniforms, including wearing non-NSWA issued clothing to work.
We ask any members from Northern & Sydney Control Centres who are in dire need of new uniforms to contact the APA (NSW) office. We will be asking NSWA to push your order through sooner than 1 July 2017.
