Paramedics offered pay rise

PARAMEDICS were this week offered pay rises of between 15 and 29 per cent under a revised proposal from St John Ambulance.The offer includes the introduction of a new classification structure that better aligns paramedics with other health professionals in Western Australia.St John Ambulance service director Peter King said if the offer was accepted, new levels for paramedics would be established, offering those more qualified an increase in base wages of up to $20,000 a year.He said the pay rates associated with the new levels would make WA paramedics the best paid in the nation.The offer comes after a long dispute with the Liquor, Hospitality and Miscellaneous Union, which had sought better wages and a restructuring of working conditions to bring paramedics in line with WA’s registered nurses.The LHMU is considering the offer and was expected to make a decision this week
