ACHIEVING SUCCESS TIPS
Bring Labor Unions on Board

Injury coordinators
can include a primary implementor as well as supervisors, mid-management, and legal and medical people.

Talk to labor unions early in the process. Discussion topics can include seniority, supplemental pay, and transitional duty. Find out the financial disincentives of employees staying out of work and discuss solutions. Obtain their buy-in by incorporating their opinions into the process whenever feasible.
