NSW Treasurer Dominic Perrottet is yet to make a decision on pay rises for public servants as paramedics strike across the state.

Union members are not responding to non-life-threatening calls for help, defying an Industrial Relation Commission ban on the industrial action.

Mr Perrottet told Ben Fordham a decision on pay rises has not yet been made ahead of the unveiling of the state budget.

“I don’t believe they’re going to get results overnight.

“I’m disappointed they’re going on strike today.”

Paramedic on strike Tess Oxley told Jim Wilson the ambos have received “overwhelming support” from the public today.

NSW’s paramedics are the lowest paid in the country despite working in the state with the highest cost of living.

“We do the same job that all of our colleagues across the country do.

“We choose to do in NSW because this is our home, and the people that we’re responding to are our community and our loved ones.”
