Eight weeks of picket duty is a milestone for this Picket Boy.
It marks the end of hoping for a settlement. It’s time to:
• Update the resume;
• Hunt for a new job;
• Develop an entrepreneurial business plan.
Self-employment here I come.
Strike pay will carry me. I’ve paid $900.00 / year to CUPE ( a non-refundable tax deduction) and as of next week I’m close to retrieving $1,800.00.
I love my current job. I work front line with an incredible group of volunteers. Yet two months of striking and no resolution in sight is the incentive I need to start a new chapter / adventure.
Wish me Luck!!!
