APA (NSW) Member Update – WWCC Deadline Extended 

APA (NSW) Member Update


WWCC Deadline Extended 

Wednesday 14 March 2018

Dear Member,

By now you would have received the communication from the Health Minister. The Government’s desperation is transparent. Unable to strong-arm paramedics into paying to continue to work, they have altered their legislative requirements to give themselves more time. It is clear from their actions that the Government is scared and what we have been doing is working.

The deadline for obtaining a WWCC has been extended to 30 June 2018. APA (NSW) continues to advise members to refuse to accept the pay cut associated with the WWCC fee which is a desperate cash grab attempt by the NSW Government.     

Over the coming months we will continue to fight the WWCC fee and the erosion of our working conditions including: 

If the Government is willing to change the law for their own political convenience, then surely, they should be willing to change the law to support paramedics?

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.
