Contingency Fund

 The Contingency Fund is used to:

  • Provide Legal Assistance to members of the Union
  • Payment to members during strike action approved the Executive Committee

  • Payment to members arising from dismissal or suspension from employment where approved by the Executive Committee

  • Financing of local disputes approved by the Executive Committee/Congress.


The Contingency Fund at present has funds in excess of €570,000.  It is hoped that the existence of this fund will obviate the necessity for levies on members to finance disputes of a local nature. 

In the absence of disputes the money in the contingency fund accumulates to provide capital to fund strikes.
