NYS AFL-CIO Supports S. 1026

NYs AFL CIO

The Coalition to Protect Injured Workers would like to bring to your attention that the the New York State AFL-CIO, representing over 2.5 million workers, has announced their support for legislation that would allow any pharmacy to dispense medication to injured worker who were denied their benefits through no fault of their own. 

S.1026, sponsored by Senator Jessica Ramos, Chair of the Senate Labor Committee, will provide a safety net to those injured workers caught up in the bueracracy of the workers' compensation sysytem. We appluad the leadership of Senator Ramos and her collegues for moving this out of committee and look for passage of this legislation by the full Senate in the weeks to come.
