Paramedics reject 2.5 per cent pay offer

AMBULANCE Victoria’s long running dispute with its paramedics is set to continue after an Ambulance Employees Australia delegates meeting in Bairnsdale on Wednesday rejected the offer of a 2.5  per cent pay rise.

The union’s Steve McGhie said the union was likely step up its industrial campaign.

Measures from paperwork bans through to stop work meetings and stop work action are likely to be considered.

Mr McGhie indicated stop work action would be the absolute last resort, with the union to collect a list of possible bans from members during the coming weeks before applying to FairWork Australia for protected industrial action.

Ambulance Victoria was contacted for comment, but had not responded by deadline.
