*If you purchase a new, qualifying union-assembled vehicle, you will receive a check for $100 within 6 to 8 weeks after purchase. (The rebate checks come from Union Plus and not from the dealer). Union Plus receives a monthly report on the sales activity from the program provider to verify that a rebate check should be sent to a member who purchased a qualifying vehicle. This process is automatic, there are no forms to complete. Keep a copy of your Union Plus Auto Buying referral email that can assist in researching your purchase if you think you qualified for a rebate but did not receive a check.

**Some benefits not available in NY or NH. Terms and conditions apply. Auto Deductible Reimbursement is provided by Voyager Indemnity Insurance Company, an Assurant company.

Happy May Day
Working people across the world are gathering today to celebrate all we’ve won and to commemorate the struggles that came before us. May Day also serves as a reminder of all we have left to win — and that the path to get there runs directly through our nation’s union halls.

Happy May Day!

Honoring Workers’ Memorial Day

  • 28 April 2023
Today, we honor the hundreds of thousands of workers who have needlessly lost their lives through preventable workplace hazards or occupational diseases.

More than 5,000 workers died on the job in 2021, according to the AFL-CIO’s annual Death on the Job: The Toll of Neglect. Workers in the forestry, agriculture, warehouses, mining and construction industries are at especially high risk – a risk made higher by an underfunded OSHA and employer efforts to maximize profits by disregarding the safety of their employees.
