Trade Dispute TD 160 - Reason for Decision

Picket Lines

I. DISQUALIFICATION

A. Violence On Picket Line

You state you did not report to work at (Employer Name) due to the threat of violence. There is insufficient evidence to establish a reasonable fear to justify failure to report to work. Accordingly, you are considered to have voluntarily left work due to a trade dispute.

B. Union Reprisals For Crossing Picket Line

You state you did not report to work at (Employer Name) due to possible disciplinary action by your union. This does not establish a justifiable reason for failure to report to work during a trade dispute. Accordingly, you are considered to have voluntarily left work due to a trade dispute.

II. ELIGIBLE

AA. Violence On Picket Line

The claimant did not report to work due to the threat of violence. The information available indicates there was reasonable fear to justify the claimant’s failure to report to work. Accordingly, the claimant is not subject to the disqualifying provisions of Section 1262.

BB. Picketing By Involuntarily Unemployed Claimant

The claimant was involuntarily unemployed prior to participating in picketing activities. Accordingly, the claimant is not subject to the disqualifying provisions of Section 1262.
