  • NY allow striking workers unemployment after two weeks
    Posted On: Feb 06, 2020

    CWA 1118 LPAT team is pleased to annouce that Governor Cuomo signed a bill today, Thursday, 2/6/20, allowing striking workers to file for unemployment two weeks after being on the picket line.

    New York is one of only a handful of states that offers unemployment benefits to striking workers. Previously, striking workers had to wait seven weeks before they are eligible to file for unemployment benefits unless there is a lockout or their employer hires replacement workers.

    Union brass applauded the move.

    “This a huge victory for unionized workers who until now had to endure an incredible hardship by waiting seven weeks to claim unemployment benefits,” said AFL-CIO president Mario Cilento.

    In Solidarity!
