Your Retirement and Your Health Benefits are part of what your Union does for you. Many people across America spend their whole lives working and have nothing to show for it. You can look forward to a pension.
Every pay period, employers contribute money into your pension account as negotiated in Your Contract. Over time, the money adds up. Each company has different rules about the amount of money contributed, how many years you have to work, and how old you have to be before you can retire and collect your pension.
