APA (NSW) Member Update – PTO Rule Change IRC Application

APA (NSW) Member Update

PTO Rule Change IRC Application

Thursday 29 September 2016

Dear Member,

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.

APA (NSW) Executive  Your Choice, Your Voice

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.
