Consumer services

You and your co-workers joined the union to gain a voice on the job. But this collective strength also has an impact in the marketplace.

When PSE joined SEIU we became part of a big family of union members. SEIU’s 2.1 million members, along with members of the AFL-CIO, totals more than 13 million union members and their families. This results in substantial purchasing power as part of Union Privilege, a program founded by the AFL-CIO to provide consumer benefits.

Through member-only programs offered by SEIU in partnership with Union Privilege we’re able to provide you and your family with special discounts, programs, features and savings. Visit the SEIU website to learn more and to take advantage of the privileges of your union membership.
