New England Work and Family is a joint committee comprised of Union and Company representatives and supported by funds obtained through contract negotiations with each Collective Bargaining Agreement. The Committee creates programs to assist members and employees with health and life issues.
The New England Work and Family Committee meets monthly to approve requests for reimbursement to members for a variety of programs. Programs change frequently, and the Committee works to introduce new programs to cover a wide spectrum of membership needs and interests. Some programs, such as dependent care reimbursement and summer camp reimbursement, are provided every year. In the past, we have also offered healthcare books, health fairs, and lifeline assistance. Our goal is to cover a wide range of life issues for all age groups through a mixture of program offerings.
