From UnionPlus.org: 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 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.
During times of heightened fear and confusion, such as COVID-19, scammers are looking to gain access to your sensitive information.

AFT members work hard, now more than ever, to educate, heal, help and serve our communities. Sometimes our own stress is compounded by a personal or workplace trauma; still, we struggle to be fully present for others. Now the AFT is offering a new, free benefit, trauma counseling, to provide help and healing for our members, whenever needed, wherever a member may be.
