The Members’ Benefits Benevolent Fund is administered by a Committee of AUPE members. Sometimes an AUPE member faces an emergency that qualifies for financial assistance from the union.
If you face financial emergency, you may apply for assistance from the fund by approaching your union steward or staff representative. The application must be reviewed and signed by the union steward or staff representative.
Applications will be reviewed and carefully considered on their own merits. Each case is kept strictly confidential.
In accordance with CRA regulations, assistance provided to members (in excess of $500) is deemed a taxable benefit and AUPE is required to issue a T4A.
Applicants for financial assistance affected by a decision of the Members’ Benefits Committee will have the right to appeal that decision to the President – whose decision will be final and binding.
