Raising the standard for good working conditions is like a chain reaction. More people will see their work life can be better.

Your contract establishes your benefits and how much your employer has to pay to cover them. Contracts differ, depending on your city and industry sector.

Many of our contracts include 100% employer-paid health insurance for 32BJ members, often also for our families.

  • Find-A-Doctor: Our 32BJ Find-A-Doctor search tool is designed to help you find the best medical professional for you and your family. We want all our members to have the best healthcare, and now you’re a big step closer to finding it.

Our contracts often include free legal help – and help paying court and application fees – for many of life’s most important matters: family law, wills and healthcare proxies, buying or selling a home, debt relief, consumer protection, and more.

If you have legal benefits, they include free help with immigration matters – and you pay just $100 of any immigration application fee.


  • Pension – Many contracts include a guaranteed monthly pension if you work enough years in the industry.
  • 401(k) / Supplemental Retirement Savings Plan – Many contracts include employer payment into a 401(k) for you through the Supplemental Retirement Savings Plan (SRSP). You also can contribute to your 401(k).

Many contracts provide free classes to advance your skills and open up new opportunities to you.
