My father is in local 703 and he is allowed to take money twice a year from his strike/severance fund. He was told he can do this because it is technically HIS money. I'm from 705 and I can't find anywhere that this applies to us. My father said it wasn't really stated somewhere that he had to call. I did call and they seemed to have no idea what I was talking about. My father literally was able to take thousands of dollars out of the account over the 28 years he's worked. Can anyone shed some light on this? Are we allowed to do this as well? How come one union can use this money but another cannot? Thanks for any information you can provide.
