Through the Pandemic!

have been extended for UNITE HERE Local 75 active members and their dependents
until July 31th, 2021. An active member is a UNITE HERE Plan member who worked at a participating
employer anytime during January, February or March, 2020, and who continues to be laid off.
The UNITE HERE Health & Welfare Plan is one of the best plans in the country.
As a member of UNITE HERE Local 75, you are one of the only hospitality and
food service workers in the country with full coverage for you and your family
16 months into the Covid-19 pandemic!
When COVID-19 devastated the Canadian hospitality industry,
UNITE HERE Local 75 never stopped fighting for workers and their families.
