For three years, workers and their unions have placed pressure on the NSW Liberal Government to reverse the cruel cuts they made to the workcover NSW legislation in 2012. Now, more than ever, we need to know how the workers compensation changes are impacting on the lives of injured workers. If you have ever received workers compensation please complete this Unions NSW survey!
It looks like the campaign might be beginning to pay off. The Rev. Nile has strongly supported the reinstatement of medical services for injured workers and is willing to look at the issue of retrospectivity. He plans to push for an inquiry into the impact of the current workers compensation system on injured workers in NSW and propose legislative amendments thereafter.
The survey results will be central to our submission to Rev. Nile’s inquiry into the workers compensation cuts and will also be drawn upon by Macquarie University academics who are conducting research into the cuts.
The survey should take between 3-10 minutes depending on your circumstances. Take the survey now.

In addition, and as we posted on 13 June in an article titled: “Workcover NSW to conduct survey on injured workers experiences,WorkCover NSW is also conducting a survey of both workers and businesses about their experience of the NSW Workers Compensation Scheme. We urge all NSW injured workers to complete this survey as well, bearing in mind that there is a time limit to complete the survey – we therefore recommend you write all the issues you have experienced on a word or txt document and then copy and paste it into the survey!
