APA (NSW) Member Update

D&D Vote Reminder

Friday 7 April 2017

Dear Member,

We are fast approaching the halfway point for the vote to determine the benefits of the new D&D scheme. APA (NSW) again ask members not to rush a decision, you have more than a week to cast your vote, please take the time to review the member information pack, compare options with the current market and seek financial advice if required before making your decision. The member information pack is an extensive document that has been prepared via consultation with APA (NSW) delegates from across the State. If any questions remain unanswered, please contact your local delegate or the APA (NSW) office. 

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank those that have been working hard behind the scenes:

Should members need additional clarification about the process over the past few years that has led to this point, please contact the APA (NSW) office.

The outcome of this vote will have an impact on all our colleagues, it is therefore important you make an informed choice.


APA (NSW) Executive

Your Choice, Your Voice

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.
