STEP 1:  Ensure that you are a SIGNED MEMBER of the local. If you are not sure whether you are a signed member or not, contact Michelle (michelle@opseu562.org) to find out.

STEP 2: Setup Direct Deposit with OPSEU Head Office. (Recall: you will be receiving an OPSEU base strike pay from OPSEU head office, plus a local top-up strike pay from us).

You can do this one of two ways:

a)  Register for OPSEU Members Portal (Please note that registration is case sensitive; For reference: Members Portal Registration Guide). You will need your Member ID # (also called Union #, found on your plastic OPSEU membership card) to register. If you don’t know this #, you can find out from OPSEU head office at 1 800 268-7376 or from Michelle (michelle@opseu562.org). Complete the direct deposit form and dependents form, if applicable; OR

b)  Complete Form B. Be sure to sign the Direct Deposit section of and attach a void cheque or a direct deposit form from your financial institution. The form and attachments can either be submitted to Michelle (michelle@opseu562.org) or sent directly to OPSEU head office:

STEP 3: Register with the local for top-up strike pay. Complete and return Form B to Michelle (michelle@opseu562.org). We do not need your direct deposit information, as the local top-up strike pay will be paid to you via cheque. If you completed Step 2b, a copy of your Form B will suffice.

STEP 4: Sign up for our mailing list. In the event of a strike, we will be communicating to members through your private (non-Humber) emails only. Please sign up here: http://eepurl.com/cWPY9P.
