AFSCME member’s support for unions earns her AT&T savings

Georgia Veiga has been a proud member of AFSCME New Jersey Local 3440 for the last 17 years. She regularly seeks out opportunities to support companies that employ union workers. 

She was happy to do just that when she switched to AT&T for her family’s smartphone service after receiving an email about the Union Plus AT&T Discount Program. She learned that Union Plus offers an AT&T switch rebate and smartphone upgrade rebate to Union Plus Credit Cardholders1. The email came at the right time for Veiga, who was an unhappy customer of another cell phone carrier. 

“AT&T’s service is better, which is one of the reasons why I wanted to switch,” Veiga says.

In addition, AT&T employs more than 94,000 union members as the only nationwide unionized wireless carrier.

“They’re a family. They seem happy,” Veiga says of the customer service she’s experienced with AT&T. 

Because Veiga switched carriers and upgraded to a new smartphone, she qualified for $250 in rebates2.

The rebate money quickly came in handy when Veiga added her tween daughter as one of the four lines on her AT&T phone plan and the family’s data usage increased dramatically.

“It has been glued to her head,” Veiga says of her daughter’s phone.

According to Veiga, the AT&T Smartphone Upgrade Rebate application process was easy. Union members and retirees also save 15 percent on the monthly service charge of qualified wireless plans3 and get 20 percent off eligible accessories4, among other AT&T benefits.

“I appreciate all the benefits made available through the union,” she says. “It’s a wonderful program.”
