About the Fund

The Strike Hardship Fund is intended to offset any hardship incurred by the strike by supplementing strike pay. This could include, but is not limited to, funds to help cover the cost of winter clothing, transportation and/or childcare during the strike, food, rent, etc., if your pay has decreased. Please state briefly your reasons for applying and include basic financial information, employment status and strike information. Please attach any new receipts or cost estimates that you may have.

Each member can get a maximum of $500. The funds are limited and will be distributed based on need.
