How We Help Union Families
Union Plus is a non-profit and the ONLY consumer benefits organization created and endorsed by the AFL-CIO.
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.

What We Believe
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.
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. 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
If you're a current or retired union member, 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.

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.
