APA (NSW) Member Update IRC Update – Ambulance Chalking
Monday 26 September 2016
We were back before the IRC today with respect to this matter. On the last occasion, Commissioner Tabbaa asked the heads of each party to meet outside of the IRC. As a result, APA (NSW) Secretary and our Industrial Team attended a meeting with the NSWA Chief Executive last week. In that meeting we put forward the following:
In the IRC today APA (NSW) indicated that whilst we have not directed our membership to carry out such action, we support the right of workers to have the freedom to express their views as they see fit.
After hearing the parties, the IRC made the recommendation that as of 26 September 2016, paramedics employed by NSW Ambulance refrain from writing on NSWA vehicles and that any existing decorations are removed.
There is a further report back before the IRC this Friday at 12pm.
