The IWSN have received a large number of calls from injured workers who are concerned that unions will not be continuing their campaign against workers compensation changes. We have been assured by UNIONS NSW that despite laws being passed the fight is far from over. They have also posted a message to this effect on their campaign website http://www.nswforall.org.au/
Just because the new laws regarding workers compensation have been passed by the NSW Government, doesn’t mean the campaign is over.
Unions NSW is working on a new strategy to keep campaigning to oppose these changes. We want to get the strategy right, so please bear with us.
We are also continuing to talk to the Government about possible unintended consequences of the new legislation, including the implications of the changes about legal costs.
