Work Union – retire better.

Working members are eligible for both a Defined Benefit Pension Plan and Defined Contribution Retirement Plan. Increases to the Defined Contribution Plan can be funded by both the individual and their employer.

The union offers a vacation fund paid into by your employer at a fixed rate for each hour the participant works or is paid. The vacation benefit is paid out twice a year – July and December.
