Minimum staffing levels for 000 workers now!
Additional staff hired to support ESTA workers.
000 workers are becoming increasingly worried about the understaffing at ESTA. It's causing longer wait times which means the community are at greater risk. In cases where patients require CPR or are in cardiac arrest, a delay in ambulance dispatch could be life-threatening.
That's why they're demanding action. It's time for ESTA 000 and the Victorian Government to implement minimum staffing levels, before something goes seriously wrong.
Why is this important?
Taking emergency calls for a living is already stressful enough. But due to understaffing, 000 workers can't even take a moment between calls to recover from what they've just heard. They're being called back from breaks and feel they're unable to take annual leave. However their greatest concern is for the community trying to call through in an emergency.
These workers aren't asking for a pay rise or more holidays, they're simply calling for minimum staffing levels so that they can support Victorians in need.
