Supporting Workers: Leslie Tolf on Labor’s Talk Radio
“The covenant of unions since the 1930s was to help people…on the job and off the job. That’s why we have such a strong social contract around healthcare, around pensions, and around job security.”
– Leslie Tolf, President, Union Plus
The excerpt comes from Leslie Tolf’s recent interview with the Union Edge hosted by Charles Showalter. On the show, Leslie discusses the wide variety of money saving benefits to union members, providing her own experience using Union Plus benefits, discussing why unions matter as a parent of a millennial about to hit a difficult job market, and touching on an upcoming benefit for veteran families.
