APA (NSW) Member Update – Threatened Disciplinary Action 

APA (NSW) Member Update

Threatened Disciplinary Action 

Thursday 26 April 2018

Dear Member,

NSWA never ceases to surprise us with their blatant lack of support for their staff.
NSWA has started to issue letters alleging misconduct and threatening termination despite employees acting in accordance with the Award, policies and legislation. In one situation, where paramedics refused to carry out unreasonable overtime and refused to comply with a direction from management that would be unsafe. You would think the paramedics would be thanked for their commitment to a safe workplace, not threatened to end their employment because of it!        
This seems to be another in the series of heavy handed actions by NSWA Executive to crush the spirits of our hard-working staff.        
APA (NSW) views this as being unacceptable behaviour from an organisation with the standing of NSWA. The repeated commitments from NSWA Executive regarding the well-being of their staff appears to be nothing more than lip service. 
Any members who are in a similar position should contact local delegates immediately on receipt of such letters. APA (NSW) members will always be supported when identifying unsafe work practices and if required refusing to undertake them.

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.
