The Construction Industry Service Corporation (CISCO) is
committed to improving Workers’ Compensation in Illinois.
Both union and management agree that they have a stake in
providing better health care and a competitive insurance premium.

The Illinois construction industry currently receives premium
relief through the Illinois Premium Adjustment Program.

CISCO and a variety of other construction associations have
supported a change in the way premiums are established. The
