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 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.
Albertans and Injured Workers need to take responsibility for the erosion of our rights.

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.
