Member Benefits

CAL SMACNA ADR Worker’s Compensation Program

Since 1998 CAL SMACNA members have benefited from the Alternative Resolution (ADR) Worker’s Compensation Insurance Program.  This exclusive CAL SMACNA Program for members includes low competitive premiums (5-6% discount) and effectively eliminates litigated claims through the use of our Ombudsman for mediation, if necessary for employers and better settlements for injured workers are additional program benefits.  You can expect timely quotations, endorsements and policy issuance through our exclusive ADR-experienced standby claims unit and dedicated loss control services.

This collective bargain Workers’ Compensation Insurance program is designed to provide injured workers with immediate and high quality medical care and all entitled benefits on a timely basis without the delays of litigation.  A recent California Worker’s Compensation Institute (CWCI) study shows a 40% savings on average total claims costs and a 25% reduction on average length of claim which in turn contribute to lower experience modification rates for participating members.  The CAL SMACNA ADR program is available to all signatory locals throughout California with the exception of Local 104.
