The Sydney Ambulance Centre (SAC), operated by the Ambulance Service of New South Wales (the Service), is located within leased premises at Australia Technology Park (ATP), Eveleigh, Sydney, New South Wales.


Employees of the Service employed at the Sydney Ambulance Centre have sought provision of access to secure car parking facilities at ATP at rates subsidised by the Service.


Secure parking at ATP is available only at a commercial facility.


This Award provides for specific subsidies to employees of the Service who, subject to the terms of the Award, subscribe for allocation of car parking at the facility operated by ATP, where the car parking space to be utilised is leased by the Service from ATP.






"The Service" means the Ambulance Service of New South Wales.


"ATP" means the Australia Technology Park, Eveleigh.


"Employee" means those engaged by the Secretary, NSW Health who are employed at NSW Ambulance, whose normal place of work is the SAC, Eveleigh.


“SAC employee” means an employee of the Service whose normal place of employment is the SAC, Eveleigh, including employees of the Medical Retrieval Unit (MRU).
