APA (NSW) Member Update – Meeting with Treasurer

APA (NSW) Member Update

Meeting with Treasury
Wednesday 22 February 2017

Dear Member,

Yesterday our President Steve Pearce and Secretary Gary Wilson met with the Treasurer’s office to discuss our ongoing concerns with the government’s D&D offer and chronic under funding issues. 

We explained how front-line Paramedics are affected by:

We also raised with the Treasurer’s office some of the issues that have become apparent with the existing and proposed IP schemes. In addition to outstanding details required for an informed vote, these issues mean that long serving staff that have worked diligently and have an exemplary sick leave record receive no benefit from the entitlements that they have accumulated and that some Paramedics may have to contribute significant amounts of their own money to a scheme that they will never receive any benefit from. 

The APA (NSW) continues to fight for a fair D&D and we will continue to lobby ministers and keep you up to date on any developments. 


APA (NSW) Executive

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.
