CWA Member Buys Nearby Homes for Family with the Union Plus Mortgage Program
Peg Bissell of Fresno, California has been a loyal Communications Workers of America (CWA) Local 9408 member since 1977. She recently retired from her job at AT&T but remains active in her union.
Bissell comes from a union family: her mother also retired from AT&T, in 1982, after 38 years with what was then the Pacific Phone and Telegraph Company.
"We’ve always been a CWA union family and a Union Plus family," Bissell says proudly.
Over the years, Bissell has bought or refinanced three homes through the Union Plus Mortgage Program: she rents out the house next door to a family member and her elderly father-in-law moved into the house behind hers.
"We always turned to Union Plus when we needed home financing," Bissell says of her choice of mortgage provider.
