How dare they?
I AM EXTREMELY disappointed to lose from our volunteer family a man that I truly admire, who inducted me into the Toodyay St John Ambulance.
Charlie Wroth was always there to offer advice and training, answer queries or just make a phone call to ask if I was OK after a potentially disturbing ambulance call out.
How dare St John management (paid employees) treat so badly one of their most dedicated volunteers who has given years of unpaid service.Read more
If he were a paid employee, he would be afforded support and appeal avenues through Fair Work Australia or an associated union body.
Alas volunteers are not afforded this luxury for something they do without any pay at all.
Where does St John’s public ideal of “service of humanity” come to play in their dealings with him.
How dare they sack a man that we voted for, fully supported and valued to be our leader.
This man is active in other emergency service organisations and is the ‘go to’ person in any contacts and collaboration required to ensure the smooth operation of joint operations and promotional activities.
I am a very disappointed and disillusioned volunteer ambulance officer.
