APA (NSW) Member Update: Revised wage offer announced

Dear Member,

Today, as a result of your action, the needle has started to shift.

The NSW Government have announced they are walking back from the pitiful 1.04% wage offer and will be giving all public sector workers a 2.5% wage increase for the 2021/22 financial year.

The strength we are showing in solidarity is working. We all know that Paramedics deserve far more than 2.5%, so our Industrial Action continues as planned until midday tomorrow.

We are still awaiting a formal revised wage offer, and expect to have full details about this policy decision after the budget is handed down tomorrow.

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.
