Applying to the Hardship Fund
If you are likely to experience hardship as a result of losing a day’s pay by striking, you can apply to the Haringey NUT fund. This money has been donated by generous members and through fund raising events, such as the Comedy Nights at Downstairs at the King’s Head.
How to apply
• Email a photo or scan of the payslip from the month before the strike and the month after, which will show how much you have been deducted, to firstname.lastname@example.org
• In the email, describe how this has caused you hardship.
What happens next?
A sub committee of the local association meets and makes a decision on who will be given money and how much, depending on the number of applications, the circumstances of the members and the amount of money in the fund. Members will be notified by email. Applicants may not receive the full amount they have lost.
Supporting your colleagues
If you were unable to strike, but support what your colleagues have done, you may wish to contribute to the fund. We suggest a day’s pay, but anything you can give is gratefully received. Please see below for ways to donate. Thank you.
