ABOUT 10 YEARS AGO I INJURED MY KNEE AND HAD TO HAVE AN OPERATION. I WAS OUT OF WORK FOR 21/2 YEARS. WHILE I AM EMPLOYED BY A COMPANY THAT HAS A UNION, I PAID MY INSURANCE DURING THAT TIME AND RECEIVED WORKERS COMP. NOW I AM THINKING OF RETIRING SOON AND THE COMPANY IS SAYING I HAVE TO WORK 21/2 MORE YEARS BECAUSE THERE WAS NO RETIREMENT PAID IN DURING MY ABSENCE. HOW CAN I ARGUE THIS AS I WAS HURT DUE TO THE JOB? I DON'T WANT TO WORK 2 1/2 MORE YEARS NOR DO I FEEL I SHOULD HAVE TO BUY THAT TIME AT APPROX. $10,000. IS THERE ANY RECOURSE FOR ME? IS THIS THE CORRECT BOARD TO POST THIS TO?

Read your union manual, about retirement benefits....

It will probably say that only WAGES are counted toward retirment contributions.

And workmans comp is NOT wages!

You should have demanded in your settlement, that the company contribut to your retiement account during those 2 1/2 years...

Its all there in your union manual....IF NOT then you might have a case.
