The ‘blue collar trades’ of IUPAT tend to attract reliable, responsible, and self-sufficient personalities. It’s these traits that make members of IUPAT and other building trade unions a low risk when it comes to home and auto insurance.
Unfortunately, the big insurance brokerages don’t currently care to see it that way. While teachers, engineers, and architects get some slack on their rates, the hard-working ‘blue collar’ tradesmen get an unfair shake in spite of the evidence, often having to pay considerably more for home and auto insurance.
Union Power is an independent insurance brokerage created at the request of Canada’s Building Trade Unions (the CBTU). They’ve taken the time to crunch the numbers and realize that members of trade unions deserve much lower rates than they’ve been getting, and are on a mission to give you the rates you deserve.
The minds behind the Union Power are the same who revolutionized seniors’ auto insurance by realizing their high going rates and reduced risk, and starting Grey Power in the 90s.
So why deal with a broker instead of directly with a bank such as RBC or an insurance provider such as Allstate?
Because a broker works for you. Not an insurance company, and not the bank.
If you get your insurance from a bank or provider and have to make a claim, you will have to deal with the provider directly, which means wrestling with a system that knows all the tricks to make them pay out as little as possible.
If you have your insurance through a broker like Union Power, you deal with the broker. And since the only interests that a broker has in mind is yours, you can be absolutely certain that they’ll fight tooth and nail to make sure you get the payout you deserve.
