Can a member of a union that is on strike receive unemployment benefits?

If you are involved in a strike (labor dispute) you are not eligible for unemployment benefits during the strike if you refuse to cross the picket line. Individuals who are part of a temporary layoff by their employer are eligible to apply for unemployment benefits during the layoff period.
