Unionplus.orgIf you haven’t already signed up for your benefits from UnionPlus.org, take a couple minutes and do it now.  The website is chock full of links to vendors offering great discounts and the variety is amazing.  You can get discounts from AT&T as well as deep discounts on floral purchases, car rentals and tires. They offer financial support services, mortgage lending, even hardship help.

To begin your benefits, start the sign-in process by selecting “CWA/TNG” from the drop-down menu.  Your membership in Pacific Media Workers Guild makes you a member of The NewsGuild (TNG) and Communications Workers of America (CWA).  We are a “Local” of CWA – Local 39521.

Then, input your email address and finish the process.  You can choose to have notices sent – otherwise de-select that option.

With Christmas right around the corner, you are going to enjoy many specials and discounts.  Here are specific benefits for CWA members:
