How will I receive strike pay?

Members who perform a minimum of four or more hours of strike duties per day, or a minimum of 20 or more hours per week, are eligible for strike pay.

Strike pay will be distributed through direct deposit on a weekly basis. You will receive two deposits: one from OPSEU/SEFPO (OPSEU/SEFPO strike pay) and one from a designated Unit 1 Strike Account (CAUT Defense Fund Daily Benefit). CAUT funding begins on the fourth day of the strike.

To receive strike pay from OPSEU/SEFPO, you must first be a signed up member of the Union by completing the online application form, and you must register on the OPSEU/SEFPO membership portal and provide your direct deposit information.

If you are not signed up as a member, you can sign up using the online application form here:

The Union will need the same direct deposit information to process your CAUT Daily Benefit and will contact you to ask for that information and authorization.
