In January of 2013 my husband was killed in a workplace incident in Regina Saskatchewan. But he was far from just my husband, and far from just an employee. He was a father, a son, a brother, an uncle, a grandson, a friend, a co worker, he was a human being. He was a tax payer, he was a home owner, he was a patient, he was a union member, he was a worker, his very existence was relevant, in one way or another, to everybody. This movement is relevant to everybody whether you go to work or not. People you care about do. It is important the every person knows that the systems in place to help them and to protect them and to keep them safe are flawed, not regularly enforced and have been cut back to the point of being unable to function. This is not a political issue, this is not somebody else’s problem, this is a reality for every person. I never imagined it would happen to me, and nobody does. But it can, in a split second. The goal of this group is to organize a movement that is led by the people, and for the people. To create a voice that is so loud it can no longer be ignored. To put a face to workplace injury and fatalities. To raise awareness, to find support, and to most importantly fight for our fundamental rights as a collective body of human beings.
Post your troubles , post the positives and the negatives …Time to take a stand ..i myself am getting ready to picket WCB
2 Corinthians 6 9:10 The world ignores us, but we are known to God, we live close to death, but here we are, still very much alive. We have been injured but kept from death. Our hearts ache, but at the same time we have the joy of the Lord. We are poor, but we give rich spiritual gifts to others. We own nothing, and yet we enjoy everything.
*Justice for Saskatchewan, Injured / Disabled Workers* “WCB Employees Paid to Commit Fraud” “Denied Medical / Rehabilitation Benefits by WCB” The Historic Meredith Agreement in which WCB was founded has been twisted like a pretzel to deny injured workers benefits of medical care / lost wages, after suffering workplace injury. In the summary documents, prepared by Board services, and used in Board Members Judicial Appeal Hearing, I found falsified medical reports / complete lies. How can you receive a fair hearing when WCB employees place falsified and fabricated lies, to deliberately con-volute / misconstrue, your claim? Enough is Enough, It’s obvious the WCB “Road to Zero” is in reality a road to zero, benefits; How is it possible, all 3 of my MRI scans were not properly evaluated? 2 scans at University Hospital, radiologists- Dr. Derek Fladeland, Dr. Brent Burbridge, Dr. Stephan Kriegler all missed; Herniated Disc’s / Annular Disc tears / Traumatic endplate fractures; Facet Injuries; Spinal Stenosis; It’s as plain as the nose on your face; WCB Saskatchewan, is; Medical Legal Insurance Fraud; Racketeering; Designed to contain costs, at the expense, of the injured worker / family. In 1998, Gordon Scrimbit, was told by Wascana Rehab, he would never work again, WCB’s answer; ” While we do not disagree with the diagnosis, we do not see how this could be so”. In other words the evidence was totally disregarded. Recently WCB placed a contract out for bid for a new computer program; est: cost of $20 Million; WCB received their new computer program which cost over $30 Million dollars: Yet Injured Workers are being denied medical treatment requested by physicians for diagnosis / treatment. If you are a injured or disabled worker who wants to join this WCB, “Class Action Lawsuit” please send a request, this facebook group is PRIVATE, (However WCB likely will see all members eventually) Many Others Just like Yourselves, MUST, take this first step, and place your name on the lawsuit; We will hold 3 meetings, after the 3 meetings we will file the lawsuit in Court of Queens Bench; We are contacting several competent Law Firms; As a group, the choice of which Law Firm will handle the Lawsuit, must be voted on. Sincerely Bruce Junker
Ontario Network of Injured Workers Groups Who are we? We are a group of workers (and family members) who have been injured or made sick on the job. We have first hand experience of the WCB/WSIB system and know it needs improvement! ONIWG is growing. We now have 21 member groups and more are joining. ONIWG groups in your community: – Offer peer support – meet other workers who face the same difficulties and challenges that you do – Supply information regarding the compensation system – Provide an opportunity to join the fight What we are fighting for! Reform of the Workers’ Compensation Act and Policy and return to the founding principles. Dignity, Respect and Justice must be the foundation for a renewed Workers’ Compensation System. We want an Act with the stated purpose to truly assist and compensate workers injured, made sick and disabled at work. Current Campaigns Bring in full cost of living protection for all injured workers’ benefits Provide pensions for workers with permanent disabilities and eliminate the deeming system – injured workers need real jobs and job security or full compensation Learn more about the Network: http://www.injuredworkersonline.org/Organizations/oniwg.html
