What Union Members should Keep in Mind
Not only are you, as a union member, protected by state workers’ compensation law, you may also be protected under the collective bargaining agreement your union has with your employer. It is important to know your rights as a union member who has suffered a union worker injury. Here are some of the things you must consider:
- Unions can inform you about your rights under a collective bargaining agreement and your options under such contracts.
- You may have special benefits available to you under your union welfare fund.
- It is important to work with your union to achieve a greater likelihood of success following a union worker injury.
- Your union may afford you with additional job protection while you are hurt and unable to work.
- Unions may be able to aid you in the investigation of your accident.
