APA (NSW) Member Update – IRC Review of Metro Changes

APA (NSW) Member Update

IRC Review of Metro Changes

Thursday 10 August 2017

Dear Member,

Last week APA (NSW) attended a review of the changes to metro rosters which were disputed by us at the IRC earlier this year. The Commissioner spent considerable time hearing our outstanding concerns and walked through the Bankstown Superstation to get an understanding of some of the changes. 

APA (NSW) raised the following matters:

Although views differed between NSW Ambulance and APA (NSW) on most of the matters, the Commissioner expressed a willingness to continue to assist. APA (NSW) will be attending the IRC later in August to continue these discussions. In particular, APA (NSW) has asked NSW Ambulance what steps they will be taking to ensure that paramedics receive breaks as the current rosters have had no positive impact.

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.
