Union and Non-Union Trade Workers injured On The Job

Trade Workers Injured on the Job in New York, Brooklyn & Staten Island

Helping those in the trades get the fullest compensation for their workplace injuries

The American labor movement can trace some of its earliest roots back to New York, where, in 1833, journeymen carpenters staged a strike for a wage increase. Supported by other tradespeople, their demands were finally met. Today, union and non-union carpenters, welders, ironworkers, electricians, plumbers, roofers, HVAC specialists, and machinists as well as window washers, restaurant workers and others can take continued pride in the contributions they have made to the growth of New York City and New York State.
