Will I be paid during a strike?
If a strike is called and picket lines are set up, the Employer will no longer pay us.
YUFA Strike Pay will be $1000 per week (non-taxable). To be eligible, members will participate for 4 days for 4 hours of onsite and/or remote participation (for those needing accommodation) in strike duties during weekdays. Members are encouraged to participate for 5 weekdays, if possible, although this would not result in additional strike pay. Members are also strongly encouraged to participate in in-person picketing on campus. Pro-rated strike pay will be available for reduced hours.
Members would also be expected to respect the picket line to receive strike pay.
Members on work visas are entitled to participate in a legal strike and to not have their work permits affected.
