Teamsters Canada ensures that it is fully prepared for unpleasant situations unions may face. Commonly, strikes are one of the biggest issues facing labour unions today.
As a result, Teamsters Canada has designated a certain portion to strikes from the Teamsters Canada Financial Service Department. The strike fund was originated at a convention, which took place in December of 1994. The fund is one way of acknowledging Teamsters members and their work. By having such a fund, Teamsters Canada ensures security and peace of mind to its members.
