Just to refresh, these were;
1. BEING RESPECTFUL
2. WORKING TOGETHER
3. BEING ACCOUNTABLE
4. OPENLY COMMUNICATING
5. DRIVING INNOVATION,
Well, on Friday the news broke that one of the senior lead negotiators in the on going, never ending ambulance dispute had been disseminating fraudulent emails to the ambulance union in an attempt to put pressure on it to settle the dispute.
I am simply stunned, people ask why paramedics do not trust their employer.
When their employer makes statements but refuses to put those assurances, like travelling limits in a binding document, people seem genuinely surprised at the level of cynicism that paramedics have for their employer.
Paramedics are being disciplined, and indeed having their employment terminated for seemingly minor breeches of these values. Indeed I am aware of some occasions where these values are quoted, but have seemingly nothing to do what is going on.
Well it is time Ambulance Victoria, to apply these values to yourselves.
This man can never again have anything to do with Ambulance Enterprise Bargaining, if only for the reason that as long as he does just how do negotiations continue in good faith?
If indeed they ever did from this man.
Paramedics are P****d off alright, just not with their union.
Only in the last few weeks have they voted overwhelmingly to step up industrial action.
I am sure this will only anger them more.
If you are as disgusted as I am at the conduct of this man, then please do something.
These are the email addresses of his superiors at the Department of Health.
Let them know what you think of this conduct.
