APA (NSW) Member Update – Mental Health & Wellbeing Study of Emergency Services

APA (NSW) Member Update

Mental Health & Wellbeing Study of Emergency Services 

Wednesday 18 October 2017

Dear Member,

Beyond Blue is an Australian not for profit organisation working to address issues associated with depression, anxiety disorders and related mental disorders. They are currently doing a national study into the mental health and wellbeing of Police and emergency services, including paramedics. 

Beyond Blue requires as many emergency services employees as possible to participate in their study. We strongly encourage our members to participate to support an organisation that aims at tackling mental health issues which we know is something that effects a lot of paramedics and paramedic support staff.

If you would like to assist please click here for more information.

Regards,

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.
