On April 23 – 25, the Public and Private Workers of Canada held a Workers’ Compensation Board Claims and Appeals Seminar in Vancouver. Members from every local participated. It was an intense three days of training on the WCB and the entire appeal process.
The seminar was facilitated by Occupational Health and Safety Officer Wayne Warawa and also presented by lawyers from Rush, Crane and Guenther, as well as Rolf Harris, Janet Patterson and Sarah O’Leary. Also included was a presentation from the Workers Advisors Office.
The PPWC is deeply committed to labour education, raising awareness, and creating strong health and safety standards to reduce – and one day eliminate – all injuries and deaths on the job.
