SMART has updated its Member Benefits section exclusively for SMART members with new offerings such as discounts for movie and theme park tickets along with other entertainment options.

Last week, the Bureau of Labor Statistics released data on changes in union membership from 2016 to 2017. It was good news for workers, as the total number of union members grew by 262,000 in 2017. Three-fourths of these gains (198,000) were among workers aged 34 and under, who account for less than 40 percent of total employment.

SMART has updated its Member Benefits section exclusively for SMART members with new offerings such as discounts for movie and theme park tickets along with other entertainment options.

As a member of SMART, you have access to one of the leading member benefit programs in the nation.  Sign up for or visit the Members' Section at www.smart-union.org to tour some of the member benefits you can use.

Just in time for Labor Day, the Economic Policy Institute again reminded its readers “today’s unions help working people” by “giving them the power to improve their jobs and unrig the economy” from corporate dominance.

Whether policymakers in Washington and many state capitals are listening is dubious.

The nation’s unions plan “to focus on our members” in the run-up to the 2018 election, bringing them a pro-worker economic platform, highlighting candidates who pledge to push it and showing 2016’s Trump voters how the Republican president broke his promises to them, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka says.

But in an August 30 session with reporters, anticipating Labor Day, Trumka admitted that means unions have a lot of work to do – politically and otherwise.
