About strike compensation

During a strike, wages are lost for those who go on strike. It is likely that wages will be deducted from all members of the association affected by the strike due to the days or part of the day they stopped working.

Members who work during a strike are entitled to their wages. Each member must request to be paid by their employer if he has been working according to the exemption list but finds that his salary has been deducted.
