APA (NSW) Member Update
PTO Rule Change IRC Application
Thursday 29 September 2016
As you would be aware, APA (NSW) made an application to the IRC to change our rules to allow us to continue to represent Patient Transport Officers (PTOs) who’s employment was transferred to HealthShare NSW.
Our case was heard back in early June 2016 however we are yet to receive an outcome from the IRC who reserved their decision at the end of the hearing. We have been following up with the IRC however we are not in a position at this stage to indicate when a decision will be handed down. We are hoping it is in the very near future so that we are able to represent our valued PTO members should the decision be favourable.
We would like to take this opportunity to remind our PTO members that we have not forgotten about you and whilst we await decision, we will do all we can to continue to represent your interests. Please contact the APA (NSW) office if there is any assistance you require.
We thank you for your patience and hope to have some good news for you very soon.
