Our hardship committee took care of us during our strikes. When our members needed help paying things like rent and utility bills, the members of our hardship committee were the ones who evaluated and processed their applications, all while making sure that our members’ confidentiality were preserved. To do this, they came up with an elaborate protocol.
We’ve now preserved their protocol on our website so that if we ever need to go on strike again, we can hit the ground running, keeping the bills paid and the lights on for all of our members.
