St John Ambulance staff across New Zealand are taking action to highlight the risks posed to themselves and the public from the current state of the Ambulance service. Sign the open letter to St John CEO Peter Bradley to show your support.8,946 signatures
To Peter Bradley,
Assaults on single-crewed ambulance staff, prolonged work-periods without rest breaks, and patient welfare put at risk are now common occurrences in the service. With adequate staff and funding these issues are easily resolved.
Please do the right thing by your staff and the people they care for and ensure:
Ambulances are fully crewed with skilled staff so that patients get the best care possible and Ambulance Professionals are safe in vulnerable situations.
Ambulance Professionals get rest and meal breaks to ensure that they are fit to make the right decisions on the job to save lives.
Ambulance Professionals are fairly rewarded for the service they provide.
We stand in support of Ambulance Professionals in their fight for fair work conditions.
The Government isn't prioritising our kids' education. National has frozen school operations funding. Sign the petition and let the Minister of Education know that better funding means better learning for kids.21,608 signatures
To the Hon Hekia Parata, Minister of Education,
Our kids need more funding not less.
Please show you value our kids and unfreeze the operations grant so schools don’t have to make cuts and support staff are paid fairly and have secure work.
You listened to us when we opposed the increase in our kids’ class sizes. I urge you to listen again and make sure all schools have the funding they need to provide an excellent learning environment for all our kids.
Better funding for support staff will mean better learning for kiwi kids.
