When a person is on strike it can affect their eligibility for TANFor SNAP benefits. Being a striker has no effect on Medical cases.
A striker is anyone involved in:
- a strike; or
- a work stoppage planned by employees, including a work stoppage due to an expired contract; or
- a slowdown planned by employees; or
- other interruptions of operations planned by employees.
A person who is a sympathy striker is considered to be a striker for TANF and SNAP purposes.
