T&G Union reveal good year for injured workers

1 April 2005

Figures released this week reveal that the Transport and General Workers (T&G) Union won over £72m of compensation for its members in 2004.
The Union, formed in 1922, was involved in 12,289 accident and injury cases last year and has now won over £1.65bn since its inception. General secretary Tony Woodley said: “People need to know that if they have an accident at work, or suffer an injustice, that there is someone to fight back for them, win and not charge them. There's a sharp contrast here with some of the so-called ‘no-win, no-fee’ firms who sometimes make substantial deductions from settlements."
