PerksCard Benefit To Be Discontinued Effective October 1, 2013
New Towing/Service Calls Cards To Be Issued
OPEIU is pleased to report that the OPEIU Towing/Service Calls program is a big hit with members throughout the country, and that the program will continue to be part of OPEIU’s Membership Benefit Program at no additional cost to the member!
At the OPEIU 26th Convention in June 2013, however, delegates approved the discontinuation of the PerksCard benefit due to low usage, effective October 1, 2013. While the towing program information will remain the same, to avoid any confusion we are reissuing to all members a new card without the PerksCard information.
All members’ new towing/service calls cards will be included in the next issue of White Collar. Members should remove the card from the magazine and put it in their wallet immediately. There also will be a keyfob included that can be put on your keychain so it’s with you at all times and can be used if you are in need of a tow or service call. Please note that all members’ current towing/service calls cards will remain in effect and can be used until they receive the new cards.
As a reminder, the OPEIU towing/service calls program is through Nation Safe Drivers (NSD) and all calls should be made to this company only. OPEIU is not responsible for reimbursing members for calls made to other towing services, so please consult this card and call the NSD number provided when you are in need of a tow or service call.
All of this information will be published with the cards in the next issue of White Collar, which will be mailed in late October 2013.
OPEIU will be printing extra copies of this information and cards to be sent to those Local Unions, Guilds and Directly Affiliated Groups that do not receive the White Collar. This information/cards will also be mailed in late October.
OPEIU Introduces Two New Membership Benefits!
OPEIU is pleased to announce that delegates to the OPEIU 26th Convention also approved the introduction of two new membership benefits for all OPEIU members – a $2,000 life insurance benefit, and a $2,000 accidental death and dismemberment benefit. These new benefits are being provided at no additional cost to OPEIU members. This is in addition to any life insurance and accidental death and dismemberment benefits currently offered by Local Unions.
Both the life insurance and accidental death and dismemberment certificates will be included in the next issue of White Collar. Once received, these certificates should be removed from the magazine and kept in a safe place with other important financial documents.
As with the towing/service calls cards, extra copies of the certificates will be printed and sent to those Local Unions, Guilds and Directly Affiliated Groups that do not receive the White Collar. These certificates will also be mailed in late October.
