At NOITU, our mission is clear: to serve our members with unwavering dedication and drive. Through skillful negotiation, we craft collective bargaining agreements that not only elevate our working conditions but also enrich the quality of life for every member. From securing better pay to providing top-tier healthcare and retirement benefits, we’re committed to ensuring that our members thrive in every aspect of their professional and personal lives.

Unlike the dwindling corporate benefit landscape, our retirement and health plans stand as pillars of strength and stability. While others falter, we remain steadfast, offering benefits that are second to none. At NOITU, we’re not just preserving traditions; we’re pioneering a future where every worker can enjoy the security and prosperity they deserve. Join us, and together, let’s build a brighter tomorrow for all.

Collective Bargaining

NOITU members are beneficiaries of the collective bargaining process, which provides organized workers a forum to sit down with trained professional NOITU representatives and their employers to address all of the various issues that impact their daily working lives. This includes making proposals of demands for improvements to the terms of their employment in areas such as pay, health and welfare benefits, retirement plans, paid time off allowances, hours of work, workplace safety provisions, etc as part of the process of negotiating a legally binding Union contract, commonly known as a Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA).  Being covered under a CBA provides workers with protections that they often would not have without a Union such as no longer being an “at will” employee and most importantly allows them the opportunity to have a voice in the workplace that they did not have prior to becoming a NOITU member.

Health plans

The NOITU Insurance Trust Fund provides a vast array of benefits for our Members and their eligible dependents. Contingent on the plan that applies to each specific CBA, some examples of what these benefits include:

· Hospitalization-Inpatient Stay, Outpatient, Emergency Room, Ambulatory Surgery
· Medical and Surgical-Preventative services, Doctors’ visits, Specialists, Urgent Care, X-Rays, Laboratory, diagnostic, Medical Supplies
· Prescription Drugs-Retail, Mail-order, Specialty Drugs, Diabetic Supplies, etc
· Vision-Yearly Screening, Contact Lenses, Glasses

The NOITU Daniel Scholarship Fund was established over 50 years ago to reward the academic achievements of our members and to help defray the rising costs of pursuing a college degree.

Every year, there’s a special event that fills our hearts with pride and joy—the NOITU Scholarship Award Ceremony. It’s a night of celebration, where we honor the remarkable achievements of these outstanding students and their families at our National Headquarters. In 2023 we were able to resume conducting in person scholarship presentation. In addition to the Lasky Scholarship award, we also award one exceptional scholar with the Presidential Scholarship Award. This award is good for up to 4 years pending awardees maintain a GPA of 3.2 each year of their undergraduate academic career.
