- You must have worked at least 200 hours during the three months before the work stoppage;
- Or have contributed on a salary at least equal to 1015 times the sum of guaranteed minimum wage per hour during the six months preceding the stop.
These conditions apply for less than 6 months stops.

Daily allowances amounted to 50% of the amount of the basic daily wage. It is calculated on the average of the gross wages of the 3 months preceding the work stoppage.
This amount can be increased for those with at least 3 dependent children, effective from the 31st day of continuous work stoppage. The amount of compensation is equal to 66.66% of basic daily salary.
