HSA board of directors waives dues policy; union dues will not be paid on Temporary Pandemic Pay income
HSA’s Board of Directors has voted unanimously to waive the union’s policy on collecting union dues on all employment income to exclude employment income earned under the Temporary Pandemic Pay announced May 19.
All HSA members working under the HSPBA, CBA, and NBA collective agreements will receive pandemic pay at a rate of $4 an hour on all straight hours worked for 16 weeks retroactive to March 15. Many members covered by the CSSBA collective agreement will also receive the premium. There is no requirement to apply for the fund, which will be administered by employers.
The Temporary Pandemic Pay will be paid out by employers by lump sum, likely at the end of the 16-week period.
