23rd March, 2021 - AEAWA Transport EBA Update

To all members

We are just updating you on the progress of the Transport Officers Certified Agreement; basically, advising that St John Management have rejected the AEA offer and stalled negotiations. We have not been advised of a further meeting or counteroffer because we believe that Management are attempting to ‘mould’ the Transport Paramedic concept into the Paramedic/Ambulance Officers Certified Agreement negotiations.

This was met with a unanimous and unified rejection of the proposal and the AEA believe this would further diminish the position and career structure of the Transport Officers, and your current conditions. We have taken a stance on ANY reduction of your conditions and more so on future decisions that will likely diminish your role and/or conditions.

We believe that management will not recommence negotiations until the discussion of their proposed Clinical Model of Care (CMOC) is debated and a model which will also see the systematic reduction of Paramedic/Paramedic crews throughout the metropolitan region, hence achieving their transport model through an alternative median. We remain focused on attaining an increase on pay and conditions and will keep you informed of any progression or changes moving forward. Should you have any inquiry or require clarification please visit the new website at www.aeawa.com.au or email [email protected].

7th June, 2020 - AEAWA Transport EBA Update

Dear Colleagues

The AEA recommenced Certified Agreement negotiations Thursday the 4th of June and the following points were raised with the remainder of the claim but most discussion was centred around the following issues:

Main points.
Pay quantum. The offer of 0% Year 1, 0% year 2 and 1.5% year 3 has not changed as Management advised they would negotiate that position depending on the cost of changes
associated with the claim in its entirety.

Annual leave – during the last agreement it was agreed that leave could be taken in various portions with 1-day entitlements also. This has never been delivered and certain times of the year have been ‘blacked out’ to accommodate CEP. There has been much discussion regarding the one day and non-approval of leave blocks. The AEA will be dissecting the leave entitlements to reflect the blocks, ability to exchange and the single day leave.

Trial 4×3 roster – which was never commenced was discussed and the AEA will be negotiating to implement a trial roster across this pattern for those interested officers. Permanent locations v allocated positions – discussion regarding some locations deemed non-permanent as these are ‘temporary’ locations and as such do not reflect allocated positions or attract travel. The AEA will be ensuring a fair and equitable application of existing vehicles are filled as permanent positions and travel paid appropriately.

The expansion of the shifts to cover the 24-hour period, but Management was unable to supply data around their proposal as they were still unsure as to the rosters they will be requesting.

All other claims were raised with Management stating they will respond as meetings progress.

Meetings will be held every Thursday fortnightly. We will continue to post updates on Facebook as negotiations progress, and further information can also be found on Connect:
