Illinois Labor Unions
Union workers who suffer an on-the-job injury are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits and, when applicable, additional third-party compensation. Injured union workers do not always report their work injuries, however, because they fear they will lose their jobs or union benefits.
If you were injured while working in a union job, our experienced Springfield workers’ compensation attorneys can ensure you receive all of the compensation to which you are entitled. Kanoski Bresney understands the laws governing workers’ compensation and union membership. We will work to obtain benefits while protecting your union status.
