Previous to CIWAA's inception the WCB and the Government have relied on Injured Workers inability to organize and remain fragmented leaving many voices without a united message.
We must unite all the Injured Workers under one group and one message. That group is CIWAA and that message is We will not allow WCB to deny legitimate claims of Injured Workers in order for corporate Alberta to benefit with the lowest WCB premiums in Canada at Injured Workers expense.
NOTICE: The name and address of every person who signs this petition may be made available to the public if the petition is in proper form to be presented to the Legislative Assembly.
To Contact Injured Workers: firstname.lastname@example.org
It is time to stop companies from hiding behind Section 44 of the WCB act when it comes to their permanently injured employees. It's time for them to step up and pay the compensation that injured workers deserve.
We can't allow WCB to cut off workers just because they are permanently disabled or deny workers compensation just because they want to protect employers and keep rates low.
This Petition is in support of the injustice and abuse imposed on injured workers & their family's.
Please sign this petition if you support the movement for change.
We will be having demonstrations to create awareness of the issues surrounding our 4 pillars, We need to force government to change the legislation to be fair and just for all. Injured workers and their family's should be given their dignity back.
Self-regulation has allowed WCB to abuse injured workers, and in some cases committing criminal acts, in order to meet their financial objectives which includes employee and a medical incentive bonus from the WCB’s chosen doctors.
Money should not over-shadow health and well being.
