Injured Workers' Day - 1 June

an open letter to Premier McGuinty from:

The 23rd Annual Injured Workers’ Day is fast approaching and as preparations are made, there have been numerous requests from injured workers to have June 1st proclaimed in the legislature as Injured
Worker’s Day.

This year once again, injured workers will be in the gallery at the legislature on June 1st. While they appreciate that the whole month of June is dedicated to Seniors, they do not understand why one day of the year could not be dedicated to injured workers.

This seems like a reasonable request to us.

We are therefore requesting that you in your capacity as Premier formally proclaim June 1st as Injured Worker Day.

This will mean a lot to the injured workers we serve and their families.
