Multi-Million Pound Savings as NIPSA and Abbey Announce Deal
The Network of Institutes and Schools of Public Administration (NIPSA), Northern Ireland’s largest trade union, has recently announced a major contract with Abbey Insurance in a deal which will result in excess of £2million of savings annually for its members.
The contract, which will officially launch in March, will see members of the network and their families being able to avail of greatly reduced car, home and travel insurance from Northern Ireland’s largest locally owned insurance brokers.
The deal will benefit some 45,000 NIPSA members across the province.
Bumper Graham, Assistant General Secretary of NIPSA, said, “We are delighted that as a result of this contract, our members will be able to save more than £2 million every year. At a time when we all have to tighten our belts under the austerity measures, these are significant reductions and will help our members across the board.
We are continually working to add to our member benefits and membership services, and this is another example of the leverage of being a part of a trade union.”
John McMichael from Abbey Insurance said, “As the province’s largest locally owner insurance brokers, we have a lot of synergy with NIPSA and look forward to working closely with them over the next number of years.”
“We now have 15 branches across Northern Ireland so NIPSA members can be assured that we are always close by, wherever they are, to talk through the best insurance options for them at the best possible price.”
