The NSW government made cuts to workers compensation in 2012. The government said the fund was unsustainable and cut benefits to injured workers, with 4,000 workers cut off on Boxing Day 2017. However, a new report reveals that the government is actually sitting on a growing surplus of $2.4 billion.

Dear Minister Dominello,

A recent report on the NSW workers compensation system has revealed the fund has a $2.4 billion surplus, which is growing annually, yet the government has cut benefits to these injured workers. I believe this money should be restored to help workers who have been injured at work. The NSW Government should take immediate steps to fix this injustice and reverse the cuts to workers compensation.



There is also speculation the NSW Government has plans to privatise its workers compensation scheme. The welfare of the injured and vulnerable should not be in the hands of private for-profit companies. Please commit to keeping it in public hands.
