Strike Pay is Not Taxable

Many of our members have started asking for T4s showing their strike pay. Strike pay is not taxable income. As such, neither CUPE 3903, CUPE-National, nor the payroll company employed by the local for the strike (NEBS) will be issuing T4s.

Members can consult the Canada Revenue Agency list of non-taxable amounts that do not have to be reported as income.
