BCTGM: Protecting Illinois Confectionery and Grain Mill Workers
The Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union is one of the most active and outspoken unions in the country. From the Hostess strike to the American Crystal Sugar lockout, the BCTGM actively represents its 100,000 members in labor disputes with a variety of employers.
For more than 125 years, the BCTGM has worked to bring economic and social justice to workers in the bakery, confectionery, tobacco, and grain milling industries. The BCTGM represents manufacturing, production, maintenance, and sanitation workers at some of the most recognizable companies in the country.
Helping BCTGM Members Avoid Workers’ Compensation Traps
Our attorneys are dedicated to helping BCTGM members avoid the traps woven into the Illinois workers’ compensation system. The workers’ compensation laws are stacked against workers and designed to help employers and insurers pay as little as possible for workplace injuries.
It is important to consult with an attorney at GWC Injury Lawyers before filing your workers’ compensation case. Individuals who go through the workers’ compensation process without representation often fail to get all of the benefits to which they are entitled. This is because there are many legal and regulatory traps that often limit the amount of benefits a worker can receive.
Our workers’ compensation lawyers have handled more union cases than any other firm in the state. We have the experience and resources to get your case into court as quickly as possible and get you on the road to recovery.
