Why is this information important to you as a Union Leader?

Showing immediate benefit to new and prospective members is a quick win that’s easy and impactful.

Locals have used the cards to support members in any number of ways:

  • New apprenticeship members can have access immediately to health care benefits while in their eligibility period for plan benefits and it covers their whole family.
  • Seasonal trades’ members can use the card during times when they might otherwise be using their hour bank or are laid off prior to future employment building their benefit pool resources.
  • Local unions in right-to-work states have offered the cards as a means to assist in their organizing efforts by providing access to healthcare benefits immediately to new enrollees in the union.
  • High deductible health plans – these programs can help with out-of-pocket costs, especially for health plans that require members to reach a large deductible before insurance starts paying.

Use these programs to make your meetings with new and prospective members more productive and easy.  Put these savings cards in your member’s hands that can provide them with immediate savings on their out-of-pocket health care expenses.

Stay Union Strong and help your members and their families realize meaningful savings on day one!
