APA (NSW) Member Update

Staggered Rosters and Death & Disability 

Wednesday 2 February 2017


Dear Member,

Staggered Rosters

As indicated in our last update, APA (NSW) has now lodged this dispute in the IRC for its assistance. 

The matter has been listed for 9.30am this Friday 3 February 2017 at the IRC (Court 5.4, Level 5, 47 Bridge Street, Sydney). 

We strongly encourage all members that can attend the proceedings to do so in order to  show solidarity and indicate to the Commission just how much the change is going to have an impact on the workforce. 

For those that cannot attend, if you have not done so already, please email us outlining how staggered starts impact you.

We will keep you posted regarding outcome in the IRC.

Death & Disability

Many of you would be aware that there have been some major changes to the NSW Government and a new Premier and Health Minister has been appointed. 

APA (NSW) wrote to the new Premier regarding the Death & Disability discussions and commitments given by the former Premier. 

APA (NSW) was contacted recently by the Premier’s office who indicated that commitments and discussions regarding the D&D would have to be considered by the new Premier and they would be in a position to indicate what this is in late February 2017. APA (NSW) is hopeful that the new Premier will continue the commitment and work undertaken by her predecessor.

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.
