We all love the NTUC and more than anything else, the fact that Fairprice is its brainchild. There are many more things to know about the National Trades Union Congress, and we’ve come up with the 10 most unknown facts!
The NTUC Vision
Here’s a quote from their official website:
NTUC’s vision is to be an inclusive labour movement for all collars, ages and nationalities.
What’s at NTUC’s Core?
The Labour Movement is a mix of 2 affiliated associations, 60 affiliated unions, 11 social enterprises and 6 related organizations. And it doesn’t end there, as it’s continuously growing in numbers!
They Offer Courses, Seminars and Workshops
Attend a HR leaders programme or take a short course on basic Japanese cuisine.
NTUC gives back to the people and the environment in many ways. You could participate in the Sustainable Energy Development Programme or learn more about Risk Management and Money Laundering.
The Membership Program
The NTUC membership gives you protection at work, helps you with your career placements and even gives you oodles of discounts at Fairprice!
NTUC U Care Back to School (BTS) Vouchers
This scheme gives NTUC members help in reducing their kid’s school preparation expenses.
Each successful applicant will receive a booklet of U Care Back to School Vouchers worth $125 for each eligible school-going child.
NTUC members are covered for up to $30,000 against death and total permanent disability, provided you are aged 65 and below.
Union leaders are eligible for double the sum insured.
You no longer have to fork out money for your holidays. Go for a low-budget staycation instead!
Discounts for Your Meals
Imagine getting a 25% cut off your bill as an NTUC member. Ooh, and discounts at buffets at the Orange Clove and Rise restaurants!
$5 off your checked-in baggage cost has got to mean something if you’re flying on Tiger Air. There’s also discounts for travels to Hong Kong and nights at Holiday Inn in Batam.
Explore Singapore with NTUC Discounts
Kids get 15% off at the Pororo Park, and everyone can enter with a lower price tag at the Wildlife Reserves Singapore, the Sands SkyPark Observation Deck and even the Singapore Zoo!
