Steelworkers District 6 Injured Workers Assistance Program
As Steelworkers we strongly believe that one accident, one injury or one person struck by industrial disease is one too many. But while we strive to make our workplaces completely safe we know that we need a safety net for those that fall victim to accidents or industrial disease. Our new Steelworkers District 6 Injured Workers Assistance Program provides that much needed safety net.

Every year in Canada, 60 young workers die needlessly on the job and another 60,000 are hurt or seriously injured at work.
