Insulators Union Workers: Working for a Safer, Greener Illinois
The International Association of Heat and Frost Insulators and Allied Workers has represented Illinois workers for about 110 years. This building trades union represents workers who strive to make Illinois buildings safer, greener and healthier by providing effective insulation work and related services.
The Greater Illinois and Indiana Heat & Frost Insulators has more than 1,000 active members who worked at more than 10,000 job sites last year. The local affiliates in Illinois maintain offices in Tinley Park and Jerseyville. As part of their promotion of workplace safety efforts, the union chapters train about 125 journeymen on new techniques and safety standards annually.
Serving Injured Insulators Union Workers With Workers Comp Claims
Illinois workers who are injured on the job are entitled to workers compensation benefits. Workers comp benefits cover all necessary and reasonable medical expenses associated with a workplace injury or work-related disease. These benefits are provided by the employer and cannot be charged to a worker.
Unfortunately, there are many traps in the Illinois Workers Compensation Act that can result in reduced benefits for an injured worker. These traps exist to protect insurers and employers from paying all of the benefits that injured workers are due.
Since 1977, the legal team at GWC Injury Lawyers has served insulators and journeymen in all building trades who have been injured on the job. Our law firm has the resources to help union workers receive the workers compensation benefits they are entitled to in a prompt fashion. Many smaller firms cannot dedicate the financial and professional resources that GWC provides to each of our clients.
