Wage and Welfare Bonds
Wage and Welfare Bond Information
Wage and Welfare Bonds (also known as Union Wage Bonds, Fringe Benefit Bonds, or Welfare Fund Bonds) generally provide a guarantee that union dues will be paid and contractual obligations are met on behalf of the employees. The bond effectively ensures a unionized business meets its contractual labor obligations. Wage and welfare bonds are typically written at a local level. These bonds are considered high risk by insurers and require more extensive underwriting.
