Send the "Best Flowers” with Union Plus

Union members, retirees and family members save 20% to 25% when ordering flowers with the Union Plus Flower Discount Program. AFSCME/CSEA member Cathi Infantino has been using the program for years to save on beautiful hand-delivered flower arrangements. 

Thanks to her AFSCME Advantage benefits, Civil Service Employees Association (CSEA) Local 828 Member Cathi Infantino has continued to use the Union Plus Flower Discount Program for years and “could not be more satisfied.” 

“I have had them delivered to various locations: Florida, Texas and of course upstate New York,” Infantino said. “My mother-in-law always tells me that we send the best flowers. Our recipients could not be happier.”

Not only do they arrive on time, the bouquets turn out better than she could imagine. “The best part is, as a Union Plus member, we receive 25 percent off, which doesn’t get better than that,” Infantino said.

Infantino has worked for the Town of Brighton in Rochester, N.Y. for 18 years. She currently serves as a senior dispatcher. She has served her local union as an officer in the position of secretary/treasurer for three terms. 

“Our union AFSCME/CSEA Local 828 is what makes us strong and ensures that we have competitive wages, benefits and a retirement,” Infantino said. “Our crew goes above and beyond and does a great job of taking care of the Town of Brighton and its residents. We are all seasoned civil servants and take great pride in our jobs.”  

As a union member, Infantino receives excellent benefits through Union Plus, she said. If members are not using the benefits, she said they “need to start now.”

Infantino has also used the Union Plus Rental Car Program

“I am a huge bargain shopper when it comes to our vacations,” she said. “I compare websites for pricing and Union Plus can’t be beat. What makes that even better is that they use all of the well-known top-notch companies. Nothing worse than getting off the plane in an unfamiliar place and having to deal with a rental car company that is not professional, or you have to drive clear across the city on a shuttle to pick up your car.”

Order beautiful flower arrangements and gift baskets through the Union Plus discount program and make someone’s day. Flowers are perfect for birthdays and holidays, and is a lovely way to say, "Get well," "Thank you!” or “Congrats.” Union members, retirees and family members save 20% to 25% by visiting or calling 888-667-7779.
