APA (NSW) Member Update – Sydney Control Dispatch Boards

APA (NSW) Member Update

Sydney Control Dispatch Boards

Monday 21 August 2017

Dear Member,

Earlier this month we reported back to you after meeting with the Director of Control Division. During the meeting, we wanted an additional board and DCCO to assist cope with the workload in SyCC. As an immediate measure, we also wanted to reduce the enormous workload of the South Board by having 2 stations (Drummoyne and Marrickville) moved to the East Board. 

Late last week, NSW Ambulance announced that they would be taking on APA (NSW)’s recommendation and moving the 2 stations.

This is a victory not only for common sense and the individuals in SyCC, but also for the community who have avoided what could have been a disaster waiting to happen. It is also worth acknowledging the bravery of those in SyCC who have spoken out over the past few weeks to ensure their voices are heard and who have advocated strongly for the change. 

APA (NSW) will continue to advocate for extra resources in SyCC including an additional board and DCCO.

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.
