DC 37 members can receive
discounts on computer purchases through a discount plan arranged by Lenovo (formerly
IBM) and the union.
The discount program has been available to
DC 37 members since 2000. Lenovo is the successor company for personal computers
previously provided by IBM under the discount program. The Lenovo plan offers
up to 10 percent off the prices on purchases normally made through the company's
website, catalogue or 800 telephone number.
The discounts for DC 37 members
are available through Lenovo's Corporate Employee Purchase Program. Members must
use a special code, "4417," to participate in the discount plan.
To find out about the products offered by the Lenovo Corporate Employee Purchase
Program, go to its website at www.lenovo.com/shop/deals/4417.
The available products include computers, notebooks, CD- and DVD-ROM drives and
"At any time, the products vary, so it pays to check the
website to consider the latest offers," said Moira Dolan, an assistant director
in the DC 37 Research and Negotiations Dept., who arranged for the union's participation
in the program. It is also wise to shop around, because retailers also offer discounts,
Ms. Dolan said.
