This is a major bargaining year for many IUOE, Local 793 collective agreements. Therefore, the potential for members to be on strike and to be eligible to receive strike pay benefits for picketing activity is real.
This is an important reminder that all members are obligated to keep their yearly Defense Assessment paid up to date. The yearly Defense Assessment fee is $30. Being up to date (to year 2022) with your Defense Assessment ensures you will be eligible for strike pay benefits should you need to access them.
