HOW YOU AND YOUR COWORKERS CAN BENEFIT FROM OUR UNION

Union Plus Program: The AFL-CIO supports a benefits program for all union members which includes a union credit card, loan program, motor club, dental program, ear care plan, etc.

Negotiated Pension Plan: Begun in 1967, the Plan now has over 750 participating employers, pays benefits to more than 22,000 participants and has over $900 million in assets.

Wages: Studies have shown union wages to be 20-30 percent higher than non-union pay.

Contract benefits: Union workers generally receive more and better fringe benefits- paid leave, life and heath insurance, retirement savings and pensions, etc.

Job security: most contracts secure against arbitrary transfers, demotions and unreasonable schedule changes.
