During the 2019 UNBCFA job action, a group of CUPE 3799 members came together to launch a special Hardship Fund to help our members most in need of emergency financial support.
We received generous contributions from the Faculty Association, CUPE BC and community members and we were able to provide funds quickly to more than two dozen members.
With the support of the CUPE 3799 executive and membership, the Hardship Fund is now a permanent fund within our Local. Any member who is facing emergency financial hardship is eligible to apply.
The Hardship Fund application form and terms of reference are now available on the CUPE 3799 website in the resources section. If you know of a member who may require assistance, please let them know about the fund and how to access it. If you have any questions about the Hardship fund, please contact Hardship Fund chair Peter James at firstname.lastname@example.org
