Letter asks the President of Workplace Safety and Insurance Board to use the Statistics Canada formulation (4.7%) rather than the 2.7% cost of living adjustment the WSIB has given injured workers.

Mr. Jeffery Lang, President & CEO, WSIB
Dear Mr. Lang,
I am writing you in response to the recent inflation indexing increase that injured workers received. The Stats Canada rate was 4.7% and yet injured workers received 2.7%.
We are asking that you absolve the formulations that the WSIB used and match Stats Canada’s rate of inflation, giving injured workers the 4.7% that represents the real rate of inflation. We look forward to your immediate action on this.
