As a caring Labour Movement, we aim to help our low-income union members lessen their financial burden. Started in 2008, the U Stretch Vouchers Programme is a core programme of the Labour Movement’s U Care Fund, providing relief to our beneficiaries by defraying the cost of their daily necessities. In 2012, $3 million has been set aside to potentially help 30,000 low-income union members with their cost of living.
For 2012, each successful applicant will receive a booklet of U Stretch Vouchers worth $100 (limit to one per eligible member). The vouchers provide a $2.50 discount off every $5 purchase at participating NTUC Social Enterprises.
The eligibility criteria are as follows:
a. For Members with Dependents in Same Household in Singapore:
Total Monthly Gross Household Income of $2,800 and below;
OR, Per Capita Income of $725 and below if Gross Household Income exceeds $2,800.
b. For Members with No Dependents staying in Singapore:
Monthly Gross Personal Income of $1,400 and below.
c. Union member must have a minimum of 6 months continuous paid-up union membership at the point of
