International Student Members and Their Dependents are Eligible for UHIP Payment Coverage (UHIP Fund)

International students in Units 1 or 3 should receive funds to cover their UHIP payments (UHIP Fund). This fund should cover both the member and any dependents. We’ve recently heard of cases where members did not receive funds or their dependents were not covered. If you have not received UHIP funds or your dependents’ UHIP payments were not covered please email Alison, Chief Steward Unit 1 at We are collecting information to ensure our members get the funds they are entitled to.
