Workers' Compensation ADR Program
California Statewide

Labor Management Committee

The USW / Irwin Industries LMC Workers' Compensation ADR Program is overseen by the USW / Irwin Industries Labor Management Committee (LMC). The LMC is comprised of a balanced board of union and management members, similar to the union health and welfare and pension plans.

Among other things, the LMC approves the lists of doctors and other vendors which can provide services to injured union members. The LMC hires the ombudsman, mediators, and arbitrators to assist in answering injured workers' questions and resolve disputes.

Medical Care

Your program is designed to deliver high quality medical care and other workers' compensation benefits much faster, providing access to an impartial expert for information on issues that pertain to resolving your workers' compensation claim. It is our aim that claims are resolved and problems are solved without resort to lengthy and costly litigation.

The LMC board members are very concerned you obtain benefits which you are entitled and that you receive the quality medical care which will assist in returning you to your employment at the earliest possible time.

The Ombudsman
