As the industry discovers new cures and treatments, union members and their families enjoy a number of specific benefits throughout their careers and into retirement. Union members who work in the industry play an important role in enhancing these benefits for their brothers and sisters throughout the labor movement.
- Healthy Workforce: Biopharmaceutical innovations have given union members the ability to avoid injuries on the job and time off recovering from illnesses.
- Healthy Retirees: After a lifetime of hard work, union members are able to stay more active in their golden years and spend less of their savings on surgeries and other medical care that costs more than pharmaceutical treatments.
- Healthy Benefits Plans: A globally competitive biopharmaceutical sector enables pension funds to realize significant returns on industry investments while, at the same time, helping health and welfare funds reduce costs.
