Voters Injured At Work (VIAW) is holding a rally/protest against SB923 (DeLeon) on Thursday 09/01/2011 at 10:00 a.m. in front of the bill’s author’s office: 617 South Olive Street, Los Angeles, CA 90014
Please attend and have any of your clients, staff, vendors or friends attend.
This bill is really bad for injured workers (and us as applicant attorneys) as it will (and is designed to) drive all of the specialists and specialty diagnostic treaters out of the workers compensation system by lowering their fees by 20-48% before MPN discounts.
The following groups (along with CAAA) are officially opposed to the bill and have written opposition letters:
South Bay Labor Council, AFL-CIO
California Conference of Machinists
California Medical Association
California Orthopedic Asocaition
La Raza Roundtable de California
The Latina/Latino Roundtable
Interfaith Community of Los Angeles
Nava & Graham
