Injured Workers Information and Support Session / Sesión de Información y Apoyo para Trabajadorxs Lesionades
We invite you to participate in a meeting of workers injured or made ill by their job and for activists and advocates interested in changing those conditions. Literally millions of workers are injured or made ill by their jobs every year. Many will recover quickly and return to their pre-injury employment, but a large number will find their lives changed permanently and dramatically. Many will face reductions in income, will face isolation, will be forced to advocate for access to needed medical and social assistance, and will confront suspicion of their condition. Others will be fired without knowing what their rights are to get compensation. Some will wonder if their once-essential work has led to their being dispensable after they are hurt. Almost all of workers Injured on job will feel cheated by a system designed to reduce costs for employers rather than serve workers with dignity. This meeting is to promote awareness for increased injured workers rights and provide mutual aid and support. We also plan to push for safe and healthy conditions for remaining workers, and to confront the system with demands for change that has brought injured and ill workers together to fight back.
