APA (NSW) Member Update

D&D Vote Outcome 

Wednesday 26 April 2017

Dear Member,

Thank you to all those that voted prior to the deadline. The votes have now been counted. 

Paramedics have determined scheme outlined in option 1 as their chosen option. That is:

1013 of you voted. Of this, 68% voted for option 1, 12% voted for option 2 and 20% voted for option 3. Option 1 is therefore the clear winner. 

The scheme will be backdated to 20 August 2016. The next steps will be to buy the insurance products and to amend the Death & Income Protection Award via the Industrial Relations Commission to reflect the new option.

We will keep you posted as the matter progresses.

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.
