Workcover claim win for injury travelling home

The support of our union has helped an IEU member secure a successful Workcover claim for an injury sustained while travelling home from work. 

Industrial Officer Vaishi Vigh said it was a positive outcome for the member and clearly demonstrated the difference IEU membership makes.
