Child and Youth Worker Lina Naccarato is the recipient of this year’s Injured Worker Award.

A member of CUPE Local 1328 for 19 years, she has served on her local’s WSIB committee since 2005, helping members when they are injured on the job.

More than preparing claims, she gives tremendous amounts of her own time to help members, attending doctor’s appointments, quickly returning calls, writing letters of support to the WSIB and holding conference calls with case managers. She makes sure members feel respected and that their accommodations are adhered to by their employer.
