MCL Members-Only Benefits

Carpenters Brothers and Sisters:

A union membership means more than having a job. It means building a career. To have a career means having the strength, protection and peace of mind because of union benefits. Collective Bargaining Agreements (CBAs) and an experienced staff help empower and safeguard you in the workplace, day in and day out. While away from the job site a union membership protects you and your family by delivering health care and retirement benefits. Union membership provides a foundation of skill-advancement training as a constant source of personal enrichment and career progression.

The Chicago Regional Council of Carpenters prides itself on positioning members for success and helping them build careers. As a member in good standing with the Chicago Regional Council of Carpenters, you and your family are eligible to take advantage of additional benefits that are being offered through the Midwest Coalition of Labor (MCL).

This coalition represents more than 140,000 working men and women across the Midwest. Our ability to provide these benefits to you at no cost is the result of a coalition of unions that we have built and our collective purchasing power to drive down prices from benefit providers.

The Chicago Regional Council of Carpenters commits to working in the best interests of our brotherhood by providing a foundation of support and protection for you and your families throughout your working careers and into your retirement.

Get Your Financial Fresh Start! Renew your financial well-being with the help of our new balance transfer rate. Pay much less with Midwest Coalition of Labor Credit Union.

From now until April 30, 2021 any member who transfers balances from their other credit cards to their MCLCU credit card will receive 2.99% for 24 months. There are a lot of other promotions out there that are 0.00% for 12 months, but our low rate promotion last 12 months longer than “the other guys” and I think the most important part about our credit card program is that after the promotional period our credit card user’s rates will revert back to something substantially below the rest of the market. Our standard rates are somewhere between 8.99% and 13.99% depending on credit vs. something in the high teens to high twenties.

Thank you to MCL Credit Union Casey Martin for his support in a time of need. Be safe and be healthy.
