Although union workers can suffer the same types of on-the-job injuries as non-union workers, workers’ compensation benefits for injuries are awarded very differently between these two classes of employees. This is because union employees are employed under contracts and other types of legally binding agreements that dictate the how workers’ compensation payments are handled after an injury has occurred. Because of all the different parties and restrictions that are involved in these cases, a Pennsylvania union worker’s injury claim can become a complex and difficult legal dispute.
Because obtaining workers’ compensation for workplace injuries can be more complicated for union workers, it is a good idea to hire a Pittsburgh work comp attorney who has experience handling union worker injury cases.

We Work with Unions in the Greater Pittsburgh Area
Labor unions are supposed to advocate for the rights of their members. Because unions can provide assistance for their members, we work to build a strong relationship between our firm and your union. When it comes to getting the benefits you are entitled to, your union can be a valuable ally.

Call us today if you have been injured and belong to a union representing any of the following workers:
- Airline & Airport Workers
- Construction Workers
- Maintenance Workers

The benefits you can receive might vary, depending on the union you belong to. Our legal team can review the details of your case and inform you of the best way to defend and protect your labor rights.
