We are a Union of Opportunity for you and your family.


Many of you have seen the news of a Hepatitis A outbreak in Louisville. You can protect yourself and your family with a simple vaccine. If you are in the union sponsored health care plan you can get vaccinated for $15 at The Little Clinic. If you work in retail grocery and do not have insurance, you can walk in to the UofL Global Health Center Monday through Friday, 8a - 4:30p, and get vaccinated. The cost will be $25. We're helping the Louisville Department of Health & Wellness spread the word. You can learn more about where you can get vaccinated by clicking the link.
