Unionized Construction Work is Safe Work.

A new study by the Institute for Work and Health has found that lost-time injury claims to the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) are 31% lower on unionized building trade construction jobs than they are in a non-union environment. The study, Updating a Study of the Union Effect on Safety in the ICI Construction Sector, also found that claims for severe injuries are 29% lower on union job sites. For more information click here.
