September 2020 marks the three year anniversary of the Ontario Network of Injured Workers’ Groups Workers’ Comp Is A Right! campaign. This broad campaign, which was envisioned by injured workers from all over the province, made important strides in ending the marginalization of injured workers and making their concerns the concerns of all working people in Ontario.
The fight for the right to full compensation for as long as the injury or illness lasts — for all workers made ill or injured on the job — is all the more important today as workers face the risk of catching COVID-19 in their workplaces. In many cases frontline health care workers and others are being forced to fight to have their exposure to the virus presumed to be work-related and to receive WSIB coverage.
Join members of ONIWG, along with the Ontario Federation of Labour, Justice for Migrant Workers, healthcare professionals, and many other allies for an afternoon that celebrates the accomplishments of the Workers’ Comp Is A Right! campaign, and proposes a path forward to achieve justice for injured workers.
