About Us

Get to know our mission and how we help union families

Our Roots and Our Mission — Union Strong

Union Privilege is a nonprofit organization founded by the AFL-CIO in 1986 to provide excellent consumer Union Plus benefit programs exclusively to union members (current and retired) and their families.

Our Mission — Today and Always

Our mission then and now is simple — to improve the quality of life for working families through our unique products and services. We believe that supporting our union members through good and bad times keeps our unions strong, so we offer unique financial assistance including strike benefits and other hardship help benefits that support union members and their families.

Union Strong — It’s Who We Are

Union Plus benefits were selected by union members, for union members. Our staff are members of Office and Professional Employees International Union (OPEIU), Local 2 in Washington, D.C. and our volunteer board of directors is made up of top union leaders from more than 60 international unions and chaired by AFL-CIO president, Elizabeth H. Shuler.
