APA (NSW) Member Update – Corowa Relief Dispute 

APA (NSW) Member Update


Corowa Relief Dispute 

Friday 6 April 2018

Dear Member,

We refer to our previous member update regarding the Corowa relief dispute which was lodged in the Industrial Relations Commission (IRC) by the Health Services Union. 

The matter has now been finalised. The IRC reinforced and upheld the strong recommendation it provided previously. That is, relief must be shared between all officers at Corowa Station. The IRC viewed this recommendation to be a fair and equitable process to be implemented with respect to relief.

The decision in this matter moves away from the historic practice of ‘dedicated relief officers’ (ie. last officer to come to station performs all relief work). The impact of this decision on other stations around the State remains to be seen. We will ensure that NSW Ambulance fully consults with the Union and employees with respect to any significant changes they wish to impose. Individual circumstances will be considered and pushed by the Union if required.

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.
