APA (NSW) Member Update – Work Shirts

APA (NSW) Member Update

Work Shirts

Tuesday 22 August 2017

Dear Member,

APA (NSW) can report that a trial involving 20 staff was undertaken recently to test the quality of a new version of the much-maligned work shirt. 

NSW Ambulance has informed APA (NSW) that the feedback regarding the new shirt has been positive, and as such has moved into the production phase. APA (NSW) has advised NSW Ambulance that all staff should be provided with a suitable amount of the new work shirts and that the existing stock of the old version should be discarded. 

It remains to be seen whether the new version will be an improvement as it has not been tested in warm weather. APA (NSW) also expects NSW Ambulance to inform staff as soon as the new shirts are ready for order. 

APA (NSW) is still advocating for the introduction of polo shirts as optional uniform items and we are disappointed that thus far NSW Ambulance has refused to consult on this issue. We will not cease our advocacy until such time as members are provided with adequate functional uniform items that allow them to conduct their duties to the best of their abilities.

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.
