The OPEIU Benefit Fund has established a brand new account-based benefit called the Account Choice Plan, rolling out January 2024. The benefit will be a combination of three different benefits: Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA), Dependent Care Reimbursement Account (DCRA) and a Vacation account. Realizing no two persons are alike, the Account Choice Plan offers you the flexibility to utilize the three different accounts in a way that best meets your and your family’s needs.

If you become eligible to participate in the new Account Choice Plan, the Fund will set up and maintain the accounts on your behalf. The level of contributions to be made into the accounts will be set through each collective bargaining agreement or participation agreement, allowing flexibility to bargaining parties and employers to contribute more or less depending on the needs and wishes of the members of those units. Participants will have an opportunity twice per year to prospectively change the breakdown of contributions among the three accounts.

We are in the process of finalizing the new benefit and hope to begin to roll out this new and exciting benefit to OPEIU members in the coming weeks. If you’re interested in learning more about how to participate in the new Account Choice Plan, or how to include participation in the next round of collective bargaining, please join the briefing.

Learn more by attending OPEIU’s HRA briefing on Jan. 24 at 6 pm ET.

Union Plus receives a monthly report on the sales activity from the program provider to verify that a gift card should be sent to a member who purchased a qualifying vehicle. This process is automatic, there are no forms to complete. Keep a copy of your Union Plus Auto Buying referral email that can assist in researching your purchase if you think you qualified for a rebate but did not receive a gift card. **Some benefits not available in NY or NH.

This is the story of how workers win

  • 22 November 2023
It has been a monumental month for American labor.

UAW ratified powerful new contracts with each of America’s Big Three automakers: Ford, General Motors and Stellantis.

SAG-AFTRA reached an industry-defining tentative agreement with the television and film industry studios.

The Culinary Workers Union Local 226 (UNITE HERE) reached its best tentative agreements ever with three Las Vegas titans: Caesars, MGM and Wynn.

And just last week, the Detroit Casino Council reached a terrific tentative agreement for thousands of casino workers in Michigan.

This is all incredible news with deals that will provide life-changing gains for America’s workers. And it was made possible by the unwavering strength of union members standing united for a better future, with all of our union family and people across the country standing in solidarity with them.

This moment is even bigger than these huge victories. This is about a labor movement. We’ve seen more than 300 strikes so far this year, involving more than 450,000 workers. Every industry. Every state.
