We are pleased to share with you that the Union of Taxation Employees will provide a top up of $50 to the $75 strike pay provided by the PSAC. This means UTE members on the picket line will receive $125/day tax-free. The top up will be effective April 24, 2023. Payments will begin on May 1, 2023. Our local will endeavour to top up our local members further, but we will need further information on how many members are impacted to determine the cost, and how much we can do.
As we are on strike, compressed days off are no longer in effect. The employer will not pay you, but you are eligible for strike pay if you sign into a picket line.
