UHEW Strike Fund

As many can remember, one of the “pros” being advocated for the NHU and UEW merger in the Fall of 2016, was the one million dollars strike fund, the former NHU organization had.

Following the merger, it was realized that a formal restricted strike fund was not entrenched in any of the By-Laws, Regulations or Policies.

UHEW feels it has a moral obligation and commitment to the members to establish a strike fund and as such, during the National Local Presidents’ Conference held in Montebello on October 1 – 3. 2019, the UHEW National President announced that the National Council would vote on a strike fund in order to support our members.

This vote was held on February 19, 2020 where a 2.5 million dollars strike fund was approved.  This fund will be restricted within our financial statements exclusively for any future potential strikes.

With this fund, UHEW will be able to match the PSAC strike pay of $75 per day ($100 per day for members in the North).

As we are preparing to mobilize our members and ready ourselves for a potential strike, this fund may alleviate any trepidation and help offset some hardships.
