Wide range of perks for NTUC members

We thank Mr Muhammad Dzul Azhan Haji Sahban for his suggestions ("Offer S'poreans more union membership perks"; Forum Online, Sept 17).

The National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) takes care of workers of all "collars", ages and nationalities.

We offer our members a suite of privileges, in addition to rebates at FairPrice supermarkets. Members can enjoy special savings - at NTUC social enterprises, such as NTUC FoodFare, MyFirstSkool and Unity Healthcare, and at our merchant partners, such as Tigerair and Parkway Shenton Group - which help them cope with the cost of living.

NTUC also partners many places of interest, such as Resorts World Sentosa, Wildlife Reserves Singapore and NTUC Club, where members can enjoy entertainment and facilities at subsidised prices.

NTUC pays particular attention to our members' employment and employability needs. NTUC members can contact NTUC or one of our 61 affiliated unions and associations whenever they need help on workplace-related matters.

NTUC's Future Leaders Programme aims to help professionals, managers and executives through learning from inspiring chief executives, leaders and mentorship initiatives.

For Singaporeans and permanent residents, we offer the Union Training Assistance Programme, in which our members can get training benefits of up to $250 every year on more than 1,500 professional courses.

We invite our members to take a look at the full suite of NTUC membership benefits at www.ntucmembership.sg and we welcome any feedback to further enhance these to meet their needs.
