Would my strike pay affect the WSIB benefits that I get during a strike or lockout?

Answer

No. Strike pay is not considered earnings by the WSIB. Therefore, it’s not offset from WSIB benefits. However, you’re in receipt of WSIB benefits because you’re deemed too ill or injured to be working. If the WSIB believes you have recovered enough to be working (i.e., because you have reported for strike duty), they may not continue your WSIB benefits.
