Ambos march in protest of HSU

AMBULANCE workers marched through Sydney on Tuesday in protest at their forced membership of the embattled Health Services Union.

Union chiefs say they want no part of the HSU but have been left with no alternative as it is the only industrially registered union to offer paramedics representation.

Since a series of high-profile controversies left the HSU in turmoil this year, many ambulance workers have joined the Emergency Medical Service Protection Association.

NSW Health Minister Jillian Skinner told the rally she hoped the State Government would pass a bill, currently before the NSW Upper House, to give the EMSPA industrial registration.

She said would propose the amendments in NSW Parliament before next week's final winter sittings.
