Introducing USW 2010’s Return to Work Representatives!
The Return to Work (RTW) process is one that requires trained representatives who specialize in getting people back on the job after an injury or illness. We would like to introduce you to Kathy Hoover, Emily Osborne and Cathy Nelson (who is also a Guide on the Executive Committee). These representatives will work closely with members and management for those members who require accommodations in order to continue to be active and productive workers. If you have any questions about accommodations or wish to discuss the Return to Work process, please contact one of these wonderful volunteers:
