Why should I call the Employee Assistance Program (EAP)?

From time to time, all of us face problems in our lives. Sometimes these problems are easy to deal with, but other times, problems are more serious and can dramatically affect our lives. Local 743 offers an EAP because they recognize many of their members are not comfortable discussing their issues with the company. The EAP is offered to help employees both hourly and salary find solutions to personal problems, big or small, that may have the potential to become overwhelming.



Your union EAP can direct you to meetings for AA, NA, CA, Overeaters Anonymous, Al-Anon, etc. for any time and most cities in the US.
