Pay rise for pollies, pay cut for ambos?! That's a disgrace, Denis!

    1. Petition by

      United Voice Victoria

Premier Denis Napthine has just handed himself and his fellow politicians whopping pay rises of up to $25,000, even as our paramedics work hard to save lives on the lowest wages in the country.

To make matters worse, Napthine is refusing to pay our ambos fairly and actually wants to slash their pay. All while he’s earning more than $300,000 a year – and that’s before he’s even got his pay rise!

He won’t need to worry about supporting his family. But our ambos do, every single day. In fact, more than half of our ambos are ready to quit and move interstate over the next five years.

Tell Napthine that enough is enough. Tell him he needs to respect and value our paramedics right now – instead of putting ever more cash into his own pockets.

Please let all your friends, family and workmates know that Victorian ambos need their support, and keep up with the campaign to value our ambos on

      Ambos work harder than any pollie, the pollies should have to fight, negotiate and justify their requested payrises just like anyone else

      Because of the word they do, it is so important. risking assault and infection to save lives and car for people. I one day hope to become a paramedic and would love to see pay and conditions changed for the better.
