Special thanks to the Injured Workers that work tirelessly through pain & poverty to expose the injustice they have suffered at the hands of WCB case managers and the doctors they hire for an opinion which dismisses treating physicians , specialists, medical evidence and goes against medical science and medical fact. Never give up , stand strong and defend the truth.
Please sign the petition, your doctor may be a hired gun for WCB. INJURED WORKERS FILL OUT THE SURVEY FOR
NATURAL JUSTICE. Share the doctors reports and recordings of the doctors you were sent to by WCB , show the pattern of denial.
Corruption is the abuse of entrusted power for private gain. It hurts everyone who depends on the integrity of people in a position of authority.
“An injury to one is an injury to all”
As Alberta’s economic prosperity propels many forward, many more are sacrificed for the lowest corporate WCB premiums in Canada. The price is paid by working people Injured at Work and denied their benefits and rights under Alberta WCB.
CIWAA (Canadian Injured Workers Association of Alberta) is an organization supporting Workers Rights to Workers Compensation benefits. We act in disclosing and exposing injustice to Injured Workers and the realities of Alberta WCB. If you or someone you know has been injured at work and are mired in the WCB bureaucratic maze, don’t give up in frustration. Join our organization and make a difference.
Albertans and Injured Workers need to take responsibility for the erosion of our rights.
Stand up and be accountable for the sake of your province.
Canadian Injured Workers Association of Alberta thanks all of you for your continued support. We ask all of you to stand with us in solidarity as we fight for natural justice for injured workers. Together we have a powerful voice.
CIWAA has been working on a petition for a few months. After valuable input from many unions and with thanks for her help to Rachel Notley who will table it through legislation, we are now starting our petition campaign.
Please sign this NEW PETITION. The link for the pdf version is in the New Petition tab and can be printed. Share it with your family, friends, co-workers and doctors. Let’s try to circulate the petition throughout Alberta. Let us show our government that we are not fragmented and that we stand together in solidarity for our Human Rights. Signed petitions should be returned to Injured Workers at Edmonton & District Labour Council suite 101-10425 princess Elisabeth Avenue, Edmonton, Alberta T5G 0Y5.
