Computer Deals for Union
Union workers can take advantage of the new
opportunity to purchase the latest computer technology at a substantial
discount from regular retail prices.
The Canadian Labour Congress has set up a
cooperative buying program that offers a wide range of computer and
technology to union members anywhere in Canada.
“All union members and their families have
the opportunity to purchase new, state of the art computers, printers,
monitors, digital cameras and other products at significant discounts
from those available to the general public,” says Max McCone, CLC
Computer Purchase Coordinator. “The computers are supplied by Hewlett
Packard ("HP") who also include in their product mix, Compaq products.”
Discounts available vary but at the least
will be 10 per cent, he says. This combined with the manufacturers
discounts available at the time of purchase can produce saving of as
much as 25 per cent off the web store price for some items. Hand held
devices have a 5 per cent discount.
Purchases can be made on-line at www.hp.ca/clccomputers or via
telephone toll free at 1-877-562-2824, where people can review the full
line of products available.
