1. What makes Union Savings unique?

Union Savings is the only not-for-profit, union run members’ benefit program in Canada. We are governed by a Board of Directors, made up of volunteer union representatives, who guide the direction of the organization.

We also value social responsibility and supporting the labour movement.
