Since 1986, the Transportation Communications Union/IAM has endorsed the union member only programs sponsored by Union Plus. Over the years, Union Plus has expanded their programs from their beginnings with the TCU/IAM MasterCard program to now a wide range of money savings programs, all for union members only.
TCU fully supports the programs available to our active and retired union members and their families. With the money saving programs available, in some situations the benefits can offset paid union dues.
With the REAL ESTATE REWARDS program, members buying or selling a home can earn $500 for every $100,000 in home value after closing by using a SIRVA pre-screened real estate agent (cash back available in certain states); through the UNION PLUS MORTGAGE COMPANY, members can receive up to a $500 gift card after closing for purchasing or refinancing plus an additional gift card for first-time home buyers, while getting a mortgage at a competitive rate. Plus with the mortgage program, members receive special hardship assistance in case of disability, layoff, lock out or strike. https://www.unionplus.org/benefits/home-auto/mortgage-program
Looking to return to college, through the UNION PLUS FREE COLLEGE PROGRAM, members and their eligible family members can earn an Associate Degree with NO out of pocket costs. Who wouldn’t like a free education from Eastern Gateway Community College, an accredited public, non-profit school, in the University System of Ohio. Or, earn a BACHELOR’S DEGREE at substantially reduced or no costs through the Central State University. https://www.unionplus.org/benefits/education
