WORKERS’ COMPENSATION WORKERS FROM ACROSS CANADA MEET TO DISCUSS CRUSHING WORKLOADS AND THE NEED FOR SWEEPING REFORMS FOR MENTAL HEALTH INJURIES
Niagara Falls, ON – Representatives of the major unions representing Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB) workers in Canada met to discuss issues that impact injured workers, employers and employees of workers compensation boards.
The Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), National Union of Public and General Employees (NUPGE), and the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) represent Workers’ Compensation employees in Canada’s ten provinces and three territories.
The conference focused on two primary issues affecting employees of WCB’s and injured workers alike. Sadly, unreasonable workloads are experienced by workers in multiple sectors across Canada. No one is immune from the negative health impacts of heavy workloads.
