In order to help our members add value to their union membership, it is a goal of our administration to negotiate local benefits for those who pay dues. The previous Executive Council voted to begin a partnership with two local realtors backed by Coldwell Banker. The idea was to offer real estate workshops to our members as an added benefit. Unfortunately, COVID sidelined that project.
Over the summer, Stephen McCarthy and Judi Camhout, the realtors, approached the new administration about implementation of the program. They were now prepared to deliver workshops on two different pathways to homeownership, could offer free credit restoration through partnership with a third party agency, and a hotline to call with questions regarding lending, buying, selling, renting, property tax, or closing. Our new Executive Council voted to continue the partnership.
The hotline is open to all STPSB employees. The workshops will be offered to union members only.
Disclaimer: In building these partnerships, our sole goal is to seek reputable local businesses and agents in order to provide more value for our members, without whom the union wouldn't be possible. The Federation will never seek profit from these partnerships, nor will we ever sell our membership list.
