CUPE members are entitled to strike pay from the National Strike Fund starting on the 10th day of a strike (counting weekends and holidays).

The same applies if you are:
· on a rotating strike (counting only the strike days, not regular work days)
· locked out
· honouring the picket line of another CUPE local or trade union on a shared work site

Depending on where you work, you may also be eligible for strike pay from your CUPE division or local.

If the strike continues for more than 10 days you will receive an additional $80 once the strike is settled to help you out until your employer starts paying you again.
