Your Benefits—For Union Members by Union Members

Union Plus is a non-profit and we’re the ONLY consumer benefits organization created and endorsed by the AFL-CIO.

Here at Union Plus, our mission is to improve the quality of life for union members and their families, provide valuable benefits and services that strengthen the ties of union members to their unions and contribute funding to the labor movement.

We believe that our country’s middle class was built by union-strong members like you, so we diligently research every benefit and tailor them to support you and other union members — we’re working hard, to make life a little easier for you.

How it Works—Solidarity, Savings and Support

  • Stand in Solidarity
    Did you know that there are more than 12 million union members in the United States? Because of our strength in numbers, we’re able to negotiate exclusive discounts and financial assistance programs just for union members and their families.
  • Savings and Unique Programs — Pay it Forward
    We pass along the exclusive benefits we’ve negotiated on behalf of union members directly to you. These benefits and programs are FREE to union members and their families. There’s no membership —if you’re a current or retired union member or a family member — you’re in.
  • Supporting Union Workers and Union-Made Products
    We’re union and we stand by union. We’re committed to supporting U.S.-based and union workers, right down to using union printers and union-made products in our offices and our staff are members of OPEIU, Local 2. We’ve negotiated with some of the biggest names and brands to get you the discounts you deserve and the benefits working union members need — such as hardship help, strike grants and disability benefits. We’ve got your back!

If You’re Union — You’re Eligible

As current and retired union members, you are automatically eligible for your union’s Union Plus Benefits — often times, your parents, spouse and children are also eligible.  No Union Plus membership, No Fees, No Waiting Period, No Hassle.

Don’t have access to a union job? Consider joining Working America for free.

What We Don’t Do

We don’t manage or use any union membership dues to finance our budget or benefits. Period.

We also don’t manage any union pension funds or health care funds.  Typically your union handles those benefits directly.
