PETITION FOR CONGRESS TO END NEGLIGENT DELAY OF COMPENSATION TO WORKERS MADE ILL FROM SERVICE IN THE COLD WAR IN THE UNITED STATES NUCLEAR WEAPONS COMPLEX
Mismanagement, misrepresentation and misplacement of workersâ€™ medical records by the U.S. Department of Energy and U.S. Department of Labor have caused seven years of compensation delays for many workers who served in The Cold War in the U.S. Nuclear Weapons Complex. Additionally, conflicting misdiagnoses of workersâ€™ illnesses between U.S. government and independent physicians have further blocked due compensation. Therefore, we, the undersigned, declare government default of the â€œDose Reconstructionâ€ clauses of the contract made between the U.S. government and the workers as outlined within the EEOICPA (Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act). We, the undersigned, without further delay or application, demand that workers defined under the EEOICPA be compensated $250,000 per each plus continuing, complete medical benefits as od by the government under the contract.
