ETFO Submission to the Standing Committee on the Legislative Assembly regarding Bill 27, Working for Workers Act, 2021
November 19, 2021
On November 18, 2021, ETFO provided a submission to the Standing Committee on the Legislative Assembly addressing changes to the Workplace Safe and Insurance Board (WSIB) proposed in Schedule 6 of Bill 27.
In this submission, ETFO highlighted its opposition to the changes to the WSIB proposed by the government which would result in a portion of its surplus being refunded to employers. WSIB’s funding surplus is the result of benefit cuts, aggressive claims management, and the systemic under-recognition of injuries. ETFO called on the Committee to remove Schedule 6 from Bill 27.
