CMTA has joined the Workers’ Compensation Action Network (WCAN) in an effort to further inform lawmakers and the public about the negative impact workers’ compensation costs are having on businesses as well as provide information and tools to those who want to be actively involved.

WCAN was established by California employers and employer groups and supports two important bills -- SBx4 3 by Senator Charles Poochigian and ABx4 1 by Assemblymember Abel Maldonado. Both identical bills would remove roughly $11.4 billion dollars out of the workers’ compensation system.

As a member of CMTA, we strongly encourage you to join the effort through www.fixworkerscompnow.org. There you’ll be able to find additional information and an “action alert” sheet which will allow you to contact your legislators and urge their immediate attention to the issue.

Additionally, as a member of WCAN you’ll receive frequent updates about legislative proposals that will determine the future of worker’s compensation as well as future notifications of your needed grassroots participation.

Now is an absolute critical time in the workers’ compensation debate and we hope that you’ll take this opportunity to voice your concerns to your legislators.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact William Hodges at CMTA at (916) 498-3324 or at whodges@cmta.net.
