Strike Pay and Benefits Q&A’s, Form Bs, and Wear Blue Wednesday
Strike Pay and Benefits Q&A’s
Many of our local stewards have been asked questions like “How much is strike pay?” or “How much do I get if we are on strike?” or “Will the employer continue to pay into my pension if I’m on strike?” Well thanks to OPSEU.org (and thanks to Frank for pointing it out), we have two great links to help you out.
Form B – Fill it out, hand it in
In the above articles, it mentions you can receive strike pay if you are a signed member and have completed Form B. Please complete Form B online and bring it to a union stewart. For information on completing the form yourself, read here.
Union stewards can be found at MCB in the lobby on Wednesday and Friday. Stewards will take the time to review the form for accuracy and check your address is up to date.
Wear Blue Wednesdays
Every Wednesday we encourage members to wear blue to show their solidarity for the Bargaining Teams. This will be our 2nd Wednesday doing this. Please take time to take a photo of you and/or your coworkers wearing blue (in a public/non-work space) and send the photo to Jim Puckalo. And be forewarned, if Jim knows you and sees you in blue, you may be asked to be in a photo!
