Workers Compensation

Do know that a denied claim can be pursued

Nurses' claims that have been denied by WCB have subsequently been accepted when the nurse(s) pursued a "review" or "appeal". This includes both injuries (e.g. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome) and illness (e.g. Norwalk Virus). MNU provincial office provides assistance for WCB reviews and appeals.


Please contact the Local 5 office for assistance should your WCB claim be denied or if an approved WCB claim is subsequently appealed by the employer.
