APA (NSW) Member Update – Maclean Rosters

APA (NSW) Member Update

Maclean Rosters

Friday 16 June 2017

Dear Member,

Recently, APA (NSW) has been involved in discussions with NSWA with respect to the roster at Maclean Station due to staffing enhancements. 

Additional paramedics at Maclean Station were welcomed by APA (NSW) as part of an ongoing campaign by our members. The implementation however has resulted in there being virtually no benefits for local communities due to inadequate rostering put in place by NSWA.

To address this issue, APA (NSW) delegates met recently with Chris Gulaptis MP and a delegation of stakeholders (including NSWA) on invitation from the Minister for Health, the Hon. Brad Hazzard MP. Parties spoke passionately about providing the best possible coverage for the community.

As previously reported, the attitude from local NSWA management with respect to the roster could be described as at best based on false premise and at worse deliberately obstructive. In light of this, APA (NSW) has now listed the issue before the NSW Industrial Relations Commission and we await a court date. APA (NSW) will not be deterred from advocating for outcomes that paramedics know are best for their communities.

Should members wish to provide feedback or become involved please contact APA (NSW) delegate, Mark Young, via email

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.
