Through the Job Loss Grant, Disability Grant and the Mortgage Assistance Program, Union Plus is putting money in the pockets of union members in need of assistance during this crisis. Union Plus shortened the Job Loss Grant unemployment requirement from 90 to 45 days to simplify the application process for credit card and personal loan program participants.
Since the pandemic hit, more than 700 union members have applied for over $1.7 million in direct assistance from the Union Plus Hardship Assistance programs. Union Plus is encouraging eligible members to apply. More information on these programs, including eligibility requirements and application process, are available at UnionPlus.org/hardship.

WPEA is continuing to try to provide as much information about the stay at home and work status. Last week the Governor issued a stay at home order and that prompted the state to send even more employees home to work due to COVID 19. With so many people working from that normally do not, has created situations of more confusion and uncertainty. Please let us know if you are having issues around working from home that we can help with. We are meeting with your stewards on a phone conference call each week to keep them up to date on the latest from the Governor’s office as it applies to the state employment. Below are items that were discussed on the phone conference with the stewards.
WPEA’s main concern is to ensure every member stays in pay status.
