Employee Assistance

Veterans Assistance

Local 1150's philosophy is one of service, and no sector of society deserves more thanks for its service than our veterans. Our union is made up of a diversity of people that includes many veterans. We now stand to serve, to the best of our abilities, those who served us. If you are a veteran in need of assistance with your service connected benefits or just need help, please contact the Veterans Service Officer, Jeff Cascarelli. Jeff is a certified service officer who can help you navigate VA systems and can assist you in contacting the right people and organizations to help you with any service connected problem.

Benefits Assistance

Local 1150 established the Benefits Assistance Office in February 2009 with the creation of the Hourly Benefits Coordinator through collective bargaining. The office assists members with dissemination of benefits information, navigation through benefits processes, including claims and hearings, or answers to any benefits related questions you may have. Topics may include medical, dental, prescription drug or vision care, education, pension, retirement, worker's compensation, disability, and savings plan.
