Workers Compensation Anniversary Video

Australian Workers Film Guide


A campaign video by Unions NSW highlighting the human impacts of the NSW Liberal Government’s 2012 cuts to workers compensation payments.  The video features three workers injured on the job and now suffering financial loss and mental stress as a result of their injuries and the changes to the compensation scheme. A highway construction worker talks about how his spinal injury prevents him from working, which has impacted on the well being of his family. A nurse describes being assaulted and seriously injured by a patient, which resulted in her being unable to work and being reduced to a lower base pay rate. A transit officer recounts how he was injured after tripping and falling during an assault on the railways and is now unable to work.
