Union members eligible for discounted computer systems

BLE members in the market for a new computer can take advantage of a discount program through the AFL-CIO's Internet community, known as "Workingfamilies.com."

Thanks to the AFL-CIO Workingfamilies.com/IBM Discount Computer Offer, members of AFL-CIO affiliated unions can now equip their homes with powerful U.S.-assembled IBM Aptiva personal computers (with Intel Celeron processors) at special union member prices, which are as low as $763. A monitor, fast modem, speakers, software to get up and running right away, and one-year of unlimited Internet access from Workingfamilies.com are included.

Only members of AFL-CIO affiliated unions are eligible for this cost-saving benefit.

Two computer models are available at a union member discount by calling the IBM Workingfamilies.com toll-free number: (877) 426-5621.

Because the models are customized for Workingfamilies.com, no modifications are available. New models will be introduced with the same competitive pricing as the industry changes. Other computer products sold by IBM, including printers, scanners, software and ThinkPad notebook computers also are available to union members belonging to AFL-CIO affiliates at a 5 percent discount. Financing is available.
