Injured Workers Petition

We, the undersigned, are in full support of the Canadian Injured Workers and Occupy Edmonton Rally regarding our platform:

1) Independent Medical Examinations

• Are wrought with fraudulent reports and diagnoses to enable WCB to deny legitimate claims of Injured workers

2) Medical Panel Office

• Conducts Medical Panels designed to leave no recourse to the claimant Worker as they are “binding” and biased favouring WCB while ignoring the diagnosis of treating physicians of Injured Workers

3) Case Manager Interference

• Case Managers manipulate and intimidate Worker claimants Physicians when their diagnosis or opinion opposes WCB
• Case Managers operate in a Bonus Salary Structure designed to clear Injured Worker claims off WCB that is discriminatory to Injured Worker claimants.

4) Where is the WCB money that is paid into by employers?

• Why are Alberta Taxpayers paying for Injured Workers who have been denied legitimate WCB claims and forced onto AISH, a taxpayer funded social program? WCB cannot displace Injured Worker to AISH leaving Alberta Taxpayers to foot the bills.

Our goal is to have the Government change the legislation following a Judicial Public Inquiry into WCB.

Action Alert – Nick Driedger phase two

Where is nick driedger phase two

On the day that Occupy Edmonton in cooperation with U of A students attempted to protest high fees and tuition increases on campus but were blocked by police, a postal worker and CUPW shop steward, drove by and honked his horn in support of the students and Occupy.

The postal worker who honked his horn has been terminated from work. His termination was based on four prejudiced reasons: 1) “attitude” to police (even though he stopped honking his horn when asked), 2) a ticket for “stunting” in a vehicle (honking his horn), 3) being out of his delivery area, and 4) activity on a wildcat strike when he was on vacation.

In reality, Nick Dreidger is being targeted by Canada Post Corporation management for his participation in effective union activity that has forced CPC to recognize fundamental rights of workers to health and safety.

The plan for Monday night feb 20th until Thursday feb 24th is to fill Canada Post Corporation’s managers’ email inboxes with letters of outrage over the conduct of firing this worker based on these flimsy charges. This kind of pressure on employers has won workers their jobs back in many cases and we can do it for Nick Dreidger.

Thank you, solidarity, and let’s fight to win. An injury to one is an injury to all.
This is phase2

Here is the letter:

Dear ________________

I am writing out of concern over the recent treatment of Shop Steward Nick Driedger, who has recently been dismissed. It is my understanding that Mr Nick Driedger advances the welfare and safety of his fellow workers in this role. It is hard to believe that someone as honest, positive, and hard working as Nick should be dismissed, especially in light of the charge discussed below.

Mr Nick Driedger has been accused of stunting, a charge of which he has not been found guilty. According to eyewitness testimony, he was merely honking his horn, which could only make him more visible as he drove through an area with many police and protestors. Also, according to eyewitnesses, he ceased after hearing shouting from the officers in question. The eyewitness testimony in his favour is substantial, and it is disturbing that Canada Post Corporation would find Nick Driedger guilty in advance of the verdict of a court of law.

I, ____________________ request that Nick Driedger be reinstated as a full time mail service courier with no harm to his seniority. I also request that any targeting of him due to his activities as a CUPW shop steward come to an immediate end.

I am including my phone number below. Please contact me with further information on Mr. Driedger’s status. If I do not receive a response within five business days, I will contact my Member of Parliament for further information on this matter.

Thanks in advance for your diligent response,

They will be revealing a new strategy after the rally

Talk of the Town: Occupy Edmonton Re-Surfaces

Alberta PrimeTime

More than two months have passed since Occupy Edmonton’s eviction from its downtown camp, but the movement has re-surfaced at the University of Alberta campus.

The latest occupation protests rising tuition, student debt and what the camp is calling, “corporatization of education”.
How do students fit into the 99 per cent? How long will they pursue their latest protest? Are people still listening to the Occupy message?

We talk to Anna McRobbie, representing Occupy Edmonton.

Vue Weekly: Necessary research

The University of Alberta has the capability to ban and remove people from its property. It’s a part of the legislation and bylaws that all universities in Alberta operate under. The institution’s properties are private. The University has its own security force, colloquially known as Campus 5-0. And, to get into the minutiae of policing, the University of Alberta has numerous rules and bylaws governing risk management—an entire department exists to ensure the university is not sued for anything that happens on its property. In order to hold an event such as a barbecue, students have to fill out form after form and make assurances nothing will go wrong. The idea that a university campus is where freedom of expression bubbles forth from an unending fountain of youth and spontaneity is a gross misrepresentation of the regulations, restrictions and general fear of risking funding and attention that encompasses many campuses today. When Occupy Edmonton attempted to hold a protest on the U of A campus last Wednesday, they walked right into this culture of rules, regulations and fear, and were greeted by a wall of police officers preventing the group from even getting on campus.
The U of A is not the first university to remove undesirable protesters from its property. The University of Calgary decided to oust anti-gay protester Bill Whatcott in 2005 and 2008. Whatcott then successfully brought the university to court stating his Charter rights had been violated. And they had. This past November a provincial court ruled Whatcott, a non-student, non-alumni, had his Charter rights violated when he was removed from campus in handcuffs.
The Occupy movement, and those students and faculty attempting public protest, should consider the success of this challenge. Across the country Occupiers have been thrown out of public and private parks. The Canadian Civil Liberties Association is currently working to call attention to the fact the removal of protesters has been done against their Charter right to freedom of assembly and expression and stated their concern in a submission to the UN special rapporteur on freedom of peaceful assembly and association. It looks like universities can be added to that state of concern.
In preventing protesters from gaining access to its property the University may have been attempting to teach protesters a lesson in the rules of proper protest on it’s hallowed grounds, but here’s hoping the administration is forced to do a bit more research into its own responsibility to uphold public discussion even when it doesn’t occur within its own culture of rules and regulations.

Action Alert for Canada Post Employee

ACTION ALERT IN SUPPORT OF NICK DREIDGER:

On February 1, Occupy Edmonton, in cooperation with U of A students, attempted to protest high fees and tuition increases on campus but were blocked by Edmonton police. At one point in the protest, a postal worker and CUPW shop steward, drove by and honked his horn in support of the students and Occupy.

The postal worker who honked his horn has been terminated from work. His termination was based on four spurious reasons: 1) “attitude” to police (even though he stopped honking his horn when asked), 2) a ticket for “stunting” in a vehicle (honking his horn), 3) being out of his delivery area, and 4) activity on a wildcat strike when he was on vacation.

In reality, Nick Dreidger is being targeted by Canada Post Corporation management for his participation in effective union activity that has forced CPC to recognize fundamental rights of workers to health and safety.

The plan for Monday night and Tuesday is to fill Canada Post Corporation’s managers’ email inboxes with letters of outrage over the conduct of firing this worker based on these flimsy charges. This kind of pressure on employers has won workers their jobs back in many cases and we can do it for Nick Dreidger.

Thank you, solidarity, and let’s fight to win. An injury to one is an injury to all.

On Monday night and Tuesday during the day, please begin sending emails and letters to the following people in response to Nick Dreidger’s termination.
