We Deserve Better Next Steps

APA (NSW) members have voted that they would prefer to accept the 3% offer put forward by the NSW Government and continue to fight for better wages towards the 2023 election. The Executive reaffirm their commitment to listening to the membership. As such, APA (NSW) will be accepting the offer of 3% put forward by the NSW Government for the 2022/23 FY, contingent on their agreement to have meaningful and substantive discussions on a real wage increase.

Over the coming months, APA (NSW) Executive and delegates will be meeting to plan the next phase of the We Deserve Better campaign.

In solidarity,
APA (NSW) Executive
