Albury public servants won't roll over when it comes to the proposed freeze on their wages.
Nurses, midwives, paramedics and police stood as one in Albury on Monday calling on the NSW government to scrap the proposed wage freeze on their agreed 2.5 per cent increase.
Intensive care paramedic Grahame Dann said while the pandemic and border closures had been a "distraction", the community needed to stand with them.
"I believe we are doing a fantastic job in protecting our community, as paramedics and we are the coalface of this pandemic and I want our community to value us as well," he said.
"It affects all the public servants, the people who protect you, who have your back with your health, we want to help the community as much as possible."

"What they're proposing won't just be for 12 months. The effects of a one-year wage freeze would be felt for the rest of our working lives," she said.
