9am Today NSW Parliament House. IWSN Members tell it like it is .

Today we front the NSW Parliamentary Committee into the Workers Compensation Scheme.

Three of our members as well as myself will be talking about the experiences of the injured worker in this scheme. The reality of the legislation, not just the words of the commentary.

We hope to be able to represent all of you to the best of our abilities, the scheme is vast as is its impact.

It would be great if you could be there with us in the Jubilee room starting at 9 am.

If you cant join us, log into the Webcast at:


and join in that way.
