Workers Comp is a RIGHT!

A protest took place in Toronto today with representatives from UFCW Locals 175 & 633 as well as the Injured Workers Coalition, the Ontario Network of Injured Workers Groups (ONIWG), & Injured Workers’ Consultants (IWC).

The province-wide Workers Comp is a Right campaign has 3 key demands:

  1. No cuts based on phantom jobs! (deeming);
  2. Listen to injured workers’ treating healthcare professionals; and
  3. Stop cutting benefits based on “pre-existing conditions.”
