Strike hardship? Get thee to Chapel!

The union has agreed new guidelines for members - staff and freelance - who experience hardship as a result of strikes. Anyone who has bills they can't pay, or other financial troubles as a result of a strike, must tell the chapel. The chapel will go through the cases with the organiser a couple of weeks after the dispute is over and make payments where necessary.

If you work somewhere where there is a strike coming up, make sure you are in touch with the chapel. They will appreciate it if you are unavailable for work when they're on strike. Tell them if you turn down work, and ask for hardship money if you need it.
