IMPORTANT NOTE ON STRIKE PAY TOP-UPS
Will there be a top-up to the $75/day strike payment in the event of a Treasury Board strike?
Strike pay top-up requires a motion passed at a triennial convention. UCTE members have not moved to set up a national strike fund; therefore, there will be no top-up at the national level.
In some instances, some locals have set up strike funds. Please communicate with your local president for more information.
PSAC will be setting up a Hardship Fund to provide assistance of an emergency nature, including but not restricted to urgent matters of food and shelter, to members who are incurring/have incurred financial hardship due to being on strike or honouring a picket line. While it is not intended to be a source of supplemental strike pay, if you are experiencing significant financial hardship during a strike, please contact your PSAC regional office to learn more.
