The People with Disabilities Standing Committee (PWD) is for HEU members who are: disabled and working, on long-term disability (LTD), receiving WorkSafeBC benefits, or on an extended medical leave. 

Disabilities can be physical (i.e. sight, hearing, mobility) or invisible (i.e. mental health, addiction, chronic pain).

The committee promotes the contributions of workers with disabilities, advocates for improvements to disability benefits and resources, as well as accessibility.

The HEU People with Disabilities Standing Committee encourages members to use this day to learn more about the experiences and challenges of people with disabilities.
