Paramedics’ are NOT political. They are apolitical. And so is Fair-Go.com
Like you and I, paramedics are diverse and vote Liberal, or Labour or for whomever they want.
However paramedics as a collective, will target any politician who endangers the public or any paramedic’s wellbeing!
During the current Enterprise Agreement (EA) campaign, paramedics from Ambulance Victoria (AV) have used their protected industrial action to educate the community about issues that concern them.
Yes, they want equality of pay and conditions with other States, but much of the writing on ambulances, in posts on social media and on radio and TV have focused on “Ramping”, “Dispatch problems”, “Poor response times”, “Lives lost” and other issues that have nothing to do with their wages and conditions.
Many of these issues will not magically disappear with a new EA, so how will paramedics voice their concerns in the future?
They won’t be able to! They will be gagged AGAIN!
AV will again have the right to discipline any AV paramedic voicing an opinion that AV management disagree with. This includes bringing any issues related to operational matters, such as poor response times, into any public forum!
This is where “Fair-Go.com” comes into its own!
Fair-Go.com will continue to be the voice of All Australian paramedics.
