APA (NSW) Member Update – NSW Government Now Willing To Listen

APA (NSW) Member Update

NSW Government Now Willing To Listen 

Tuesday 6 March 2018

Dear Member,

Congratulations to the paramedics that have ensured that their voices are heard by undertaking the work bans. We have seen an enormous amount of support from our colleagues and the public over the past few days. 

Due to your efforts, APA (NSW) has been invited to a meeting with the NSW Government to discuss our concerns. In good faith APA (NSW) now directs all paramedics to suspend work bans and revert to normal work practices. The APA (NSW) Executive has only suspended the current work bans and has not ruled out increased and more punitive industrial action.

Although a meeting is a positive first step, an acceptable resolution is yet to be reached. Therefore, the direction to our members to withhold obtaining a WWCC remains. 

Stay strong in your resolve & keep doing the amazing work you do!

APA (NSW) Executive 

The Paramedics Union

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.
