Know Your (Union Plus) Rights: Strike Benefits

Union Plus knows that union members are more powerful when we stick together. And Union Plus stands with union members in those rare instances when they face the possibility of a picket line during a union-sanctioned strike. Among other Hardship Help grants and assistance, Union Plus offers Strike Benefits for eligible members*.
