Issue: Sub-Issue 1: Sub-Issue 2: Sub-Issue 3:
labour dispute participation by union
Summary:

A labour dispute between the Public School Employer's Association and the Teachers Federation resulted in a stoppage of work at the various public schools in B.C. including the one where the claimant was employed. While the claimant is not considered to have financed the dispute or to have had a direct interest in it, she is nevertheless considered to have participated as she is a member of the Canadian Union of Public Employees and withdrew her services together with the members of the Teachers Federation who were employed at her place of work. See similar cases, CUBs 67604 and 67606, where the claimants' appeals were dismissed.

Issue: Sub-Issue 1: Sub-Issue 2: Sub-Issue 3:
labour dispute participation by union
Summary:

Claimant's stated he was aware that the strike started 26 Feb. and he chose to return to work the next day. Claimant's representative said that he was too ill to participate in picketing and consequently was not participating in or directly interested in the labour dispute. Umpire found that the Commission is correct in not providing benefits to someone who is still employed by an employer who is therefore ineligible to receive benefits. The fact that he is still a member in good standing with the union also indicates that he was a beneficiary of whatever positive result the union obtained from the strike.
