APAQ has responded to our request to join forces with a ‘thanks but no thanks’, citing they believe that more than one industrial advocate is the best way forward for Ambulance Officers.
You can see a copy of their letter to United Voice Queensland Branch Secretary Gary Bullock here.
We strongly disagree with their stance that a divided workforce will deliver better results for Queensland Ambulance Officers than a unified one could.
With United Voice’s plans to undertake a Work Value Case as well as your upcoming bargaining negotiations, we believe that an ‘all hands on deck’ approach would have been the best outcome.
Either way, United Voice has the strength and resources to fund your Work Value Case and then deliver the best results possible for all Queensland Ambulance Officers from your upcoming EB negotiations.
