Local 793 Business Manager Mike Gallagher shares important information concerning Union members that are receiving regular Employment Insurance (EI) and therefore ineligible for the COVID-19 Local 793 Emergency Relief grant.

Members who have been disrupted due to COVID-19 and are receiving regular EI will be eligible for the emergency relief grant, reports Gallagher. He does warn of federal tax implications but assures members that the Union will go to all lengths in protecting the supplement from any claw backs.

Business Manager Gallagher also gives an update on the progress of the Union’s development of a Supplementary Unemployment Benefits (“SUB”) plan.
