Injured Workers Day is a new movement that seeks concrete change for injured workers. Join us for our third, annual Injured Workers Day event.
Our fight for better conditions for injured workers is very important and the bigger the day is, the better! Together we can win the fight for a WorkCover system that works for injured workers.
This year we're hosting events in 3 cities across Victoria: Melbourne, Bendigo and Ballarat.
Join us from 12:30pm at Melbourne for a BBQ, and 12:30pm in Bendigo and Ballarat for a morning tea. Attendees in Melbourne will join in Solidarity Hall for presentations from injured workers, WorkCover experts and other guest speakers. Attendees from Bendigo and Ballarat will watch the presentations on the livestream.
If you can't make it on the day, don't worry! We'll be livestreaming the event on our Facebook page.
Developed in early 2020 by Australian injured workers with the support of trade unions and other organisations, Injured Workers Day seeks to create a platform for visibility and solidarity for all injured workers. We are seeking changes to workplace legislation, and want to secure political commitments for change. We are aiming to create recognition for families, spouses and children of injured workers, who in many instances become primary caregivers and share in the associated psychological trauma, which can be further exacerbated by financial hardship that results from long term incapacity.
