Other Union Benefits

Member Assistance

UFCW Local 1500 recognizes that workers, both Union and Non-Union alike, suffer from a variety of stress related problems. In today's busy world, it's easy to find yourself in a situation you just do not know how to get of. In conjunction with the Long Island Council, UFCW Local 1500 participates in a Membership Assistance Program. A Union Representative can assist you by putting you in contact with a counselor/evaluator. The initial contact is FREE. That counselor can assist you in determining what treatment or course of action can best help a person. If you're a member of Local 1500, there an excellent chance your Health Plan will assist in paying any cost that may be incurred.
