The NSW Government has finally called a Review of the workers compensation changes they introduced almost two years ago.
The Review is being conducted by independent consultants Centre for International Economics (CIE) and will take place during May. All submissions to the Law and Justice Committee Inquiry into WorkCover will be considered as part of the Review.
Unions NSW has created a website that allows injured workers to answer questions about their experiences and then have this submitted by email directly to the Review. The link is http://www.australianunions.org.au/workers_compensation_review
Email your local MP, asking them to guarantee that savings in the scheme won’t be given to employers in the form of a premium reduction. The NSW for All website has been updated and allows you to send an email about this directly to your MP: http://nswforall.org.au/email-your-local-mp/
