            "Our sympathy goes out to the families who have lost loved ones during this very tragic time.  The Union Plus programs are designed to help working families while they are away from their jobs, and in times like this we have to take steps to see what else we can do to help working families.  That is why we have asked our program providers to develop policies that will aid members during this special time," said Leslie Tolf, president of Union Privilege.  "Our program providers are prepared to work with members, on a case-by-case basis, and assist them in whatever way they can during this horrific time.  This type of help will let members know that their union membership, and program participation makes a difference in good times and bad times."
