As Union President, Tom McKeever has worked diligently to improve the personal and professional lives of each member of Local 888. Securing new legal coverage for members, McKeever continues to work on additional solutions to better working conditions and support members’ private lives. This new legal coverage includes:
Worker’s Compensation: Before now, members injured in the workplace struggled to find recourse when injured on the job and were often left in disastrous situations with their income and employment in jeopardy. After seeing workers suffer, President Tom McKeever partnered with the largest and most successful law firm in New England to bolster our workplace rights, Keches Law Group.
Additionally, you can subsidize workers compensation payments with sick time. Workers’ compensation pays an injured worker 60% of their regular pay in Massachusetts by law and now you can use earned sick time to subsidize the 60% workers compensation payment and turn it into a full week's pay by using two earned sick days per week. You must have accrued sick time to subsidize your 60% workers comp payment into a full weeks’ pay. If you are injured in the workplace and need to be out on workman’s comp – call Keches Law and tell them, you are a member. Keches Law Group, Attorney Brian Sullivan - (617) 898-0808 https://kecheslaw.com/
Debt Problem Relief and Bankruptcy: President Tom McKeever knew he wanted to act after witnessing my peers in untenable debt problems related to credit cards and financial obligations, as well as employee stress when a spouse or partner would suddenly vacate a home leaving their partners alone or alone with children and facing debt leading them to bankruptcy. By partnering with the largest and most successful debt relief law firm in New England to bolster our workplace rights, Mass Debt Relief Foundation, members now have support for these pressing financial issues. If you need help, call the Mass Debt Relief Foundation, and tell them you are a member of Local 888.

The Local 888 Legal Plan: The Local 888 Legal Plan offers unprecedented support to workers to bolster workplace rights. No worker should be without representation when confronted with unwarranted legal problems and the Local 888 legal plan provides 24/7 legal protection to our members, their spouse, and their children. This plan offers support 365 days a year. If you need support or more information, please contact attorney Paul Regan and tell him you are a member of Local 888. 617-367-1100 https://reganassociates.com/index.php/contact-us/
