More member services

As an added benefit of joining the Associate Member Program, you are entitled to receive additional benefits only available to National Union members through our long-standing Union Advantage Program.

The Advantage Program  is a non-profit trust created for the benefit of everyone affiliated with NUPGE through our member unions. It has two purposes, each based on the principle of strength in numbers:

  • Membership services: making a variety of services (such as insurance, legal services and mortgages) available at reduced rates and prices.
  • Collective purchasing: offering substantial savings to participating components and locals by negotiating the best rates available for equipment, telephones and courier service.

With 370,000 members nationally, and large blocks of members in many provinces, NUAP has the ability to negotiate many advantages for members that reach beyond our collective agreements. Here are some of the areas where we have already developed programs or are in the process of setting up national NUAP accounts:
