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.

Union Savings regularly evaluates each program’s value, price and features with other similar programs to ensure that your union members are getting the best deal possible.

We also value social responsibility and supporting the labour movement.

No, all costs associated with governance, administration and promotion of Union Savings are 100% covered by funds negotiated from commercial partners.

Current and retired union members and their families are automatically eligible for their Union Savings benefits.

Union members from participating unions are automatically eligible for their Union Savings benefits.

Union Savings allows each union to select which benefits it wants to participate in, allowing individual unions to address its members’ needs and interests. If you feel you’d benefit from a program that your union doesn’t offer, you can contact your union to express your interest.
