UNIFOR – Don’t Deny SUB Plans Campaign.
Unifor has launched a NEW On-line petition.
In temporarily replacing regular Employment Insurance benefits, with the new CERB the Government has created a glaring loophole that is short-changing workers from receiving additional income assistance from their employers. Hundreds of thousands of workers in Canada have access to Supplemental Unemployment Benefit (SUB) payments when they are on layoff. These special, employer-paid benefits can provide hundreds of dollars, per week, to offset a worker’s loss of income. Unlike regular EI which allow SUB payments, the CERB rules deny workers these negotiated SUB payments.
We are asking all our members to sign the online petition which goes to your Member of Parliament (based on your postal code) the following government officials will all receive a copy as well.
- Carla Qualtrough
- Bill Morneau
- Louise Chabot
- Daniel Blaikie
- Dan Albas
- Graham Flack
- Irek Kusmierczyk
