Retiree Welfare Program
Retiring brings a lot of changes, but one thing that doesn’t have to change is the quality of care you receive from the network of doctors you know and trust. As a union member who participates in the MOE Health and Welfare Fund, when you retire, you can keep the insurance plan you are on for as long as you like as part of our Retiree Welfare Plan (RWP).
Coalition of Labor Credit Union
As a member, you are eligible for membership with the Coalition of Union Labor Credit Union (formerly the Midwest Operating Engineers Credit Union), which is a member-owned credit union providing mortgages, auto loans, home equity lines of credit, and various other financial services. Members also have access to more than 55,000 ATM locations worldwide without a fee, including ATM’s at CVS, Mariano’s, Target, Costco, Walgreens, and others.
Since 1997, the Local 139 Scholarship Program has awarded more than $352,500 to students of Local 139 members who want to continue their education. Scholarship applicants must be a spouse, child, or grandchild of a Local 139 member in good standing or a direct descendant of a deceased member who was in good standing. Graduate school students are ineligible.
Through Union Plus, union members have access to deep discounts on travel, shopping, and services across the nation. From dinner and movie tickets to rental cars and Disney World, union members save more with Union Plus. In addition, Union Plus awards scholarships to members’ children every year.
