Confirmation of membership details.

As members will recall from the update last week, the new membership fee structure will begin with pay period 3, due to be paid on 13 August.

The new rates are:

Band            Classification                                                    Fortnightly dues

Part-time     <23 hrs a week (all classifications)                          $22.00

1              Intern Paramedics / EMDSO / EMD                          $29.00

2              Paramedics / Team Leader Comms                          $34.00

3              ICP and BSO Paramedics                                          $38.00

4              All other classifications (above ICP 7)

                BSO ICP/CSO/ECP/Flight/Education/Management   $41.00

As this system relies on classification and hours of work, we need to confirm members are in the right membership band.

Part-time workers who work 1 day and 1 night a block or less will be part time, those who work more than that will likely be somewhere in bands 1-4.

We may need to talk to casuals to get it right.

This is about members' current substantive or contracted position/hours, not temporary HDA roles.

Can members please click to confirm membership details to ensure we get this right.

We'll also be liaising with payroll about these changes, but we strongly encourage everyone to switch to direct debit so the payment relationship with us isn’t via a third party.
