ANOTHER PROBLEM SOLVED: Questions about benefit coverage during a strike or lock-out

With strike conversations taking place at many sites, staff rep Donna Driediger is fielding strike and lockout-related inquiries from GSU members. One of the common concerns raised is what happens to benefit coverage during a labour dispute.

Fortunately, Driediger can advise that when GSU members are on strike or are locked out, the GSU Defense Fund pays the premiums for benefit coverage to ensure GSU members do not have any interruption in their benefit programs.

GSU staff representatives work with you to find answers to your questions, recommend what course of action is best to follow, and find the solutions that work for you. These services are provided to you and paid for by your union dues. There is never an additional charge for assisting you, and no limit on the number of time you can seek advice.
