APA (NSW) Member Update – WWCC 

APA (NSW) Member Update



Thursday 29 March 2018

Dear Member,

Last week, APA (NSW) Executive met with the Minister for Health.

The Minister stood firm in his stance that paramedics would not be granted exemption from having to pay for and provide to their employer a WWCC.

As previously advised, the deadline for obtaining a WWCC was moved to 30 June 2018 thanks to the steely resolve and actions of APA (NSW) members.

Have no doubt that this move by the NSW Government is simply a ‘stay of execution’. Nothing has changed. Therefore, the direction to members to continue to withhold WWCC details remains until further notice.

Ongoing and continued industrial action stays on the table for APA (NSW) and its members, nothing is off the table.

The power is yours. This is only the first skirmish in what will inevitably be a long battle in maintaining and improving our working conditions and attaining wages reflective of our imminent professional registration. It will be a test of our mettle. All members must fight.

Stand firm and hold the line!

APA (NSW) Executive 

The Paramedics Union

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.
