The ONIWG Research Action Committee has put together a one page handout in advance of June 1st, Injured Workers Day. This infographic is based on research done by our committee as well as academic research. Over the last seven years, the Ontario WSIB has more than doubled its reserved funds while cutting benefits to workers in half – resulting in thousands of workers with a life long work related disability ending up in poverty.
We encourage you to share this info widely – to friends, family and co-workers – and use it as a handout on June 1st. It can be used as a stand alone piece or you can print it two sided with the Workers Comp is a Right material or local information.
