Fair go for Workers Comp Day – 19 June

Jun 11, 2013News

The first anniversary of the O’Farrell Government stripping away workers compensation rights and entitlements is coming up on the 19th of June.

The anniversary has been declared ‘Fair Go for Workers Compensation Day’ by Unions NSW and to mark the occasion, workers across the state are being encouraged to take a moment to remember those injured or killed at work.

There are a number of ways you can get involved in the day and help highlight the savage attack on injured workers and their families including:

Hold a morning tea
Grab a lamington and a cup of tea and get your colleagues, friends and neighbours together to talk about what the loss of workers compensation rights and entitlements means for every worker. Make sure you take photos and then send them to wc@unionsnsw.org.au so they can share them online.

Attend the Sydney Parliament event
Join us at 1pm on 19 June in the Jubilee Room at Parliament House, Macquarie St, Sydney. RSVP to wc@unionsnsw.org.au.
