The Office of Unemployment Compensation (OUC) Committee Funding – SWEB voted to

authorize a transfer from the strike and emergency fund for up to $25,000 in the event the OUC committee’s budget is depleted due to the continued gap in funding Unemployment Compensation Service Centers and the continued need to educate members, legislators, and UC Claimants.  These monies are meant to ensure that the OUC committee can continue to conduct their quarterly meetings in addition to funding a workgroup created by the OUC Committee and Unemployment Compensation Referees, to work in conjunction with the officers to organize any actions necessary to advocate for a fix to the UC funding crisis.
