According to Yahoo! News, Aria Shahrokhshahi was failing math, and had been receiving help from his father. Because they had been working very hard with his math teachers to bring up his scores, Aria decided to secretly record his father's reaction to the passing grade on his latest report card.

On Monday, October 21, 2013, Aria posted this video on YouTube, showing the sheer joy of a father proud of his son's hard work is paying off. The video has since gone viral, receiving more than 550,000 views in only one day.

Help if you don’t know your union

Your union membership dictates which Union Plus benefits you are eligible to use.

  1. What your national union’s name (not just your local number)? Scroll through the list we have to see if you recognize your union.
  2. What type of work do you do (select your occupation)?
  3. Do you have a union member card or union publication/letter that shows the name of your union? Find something with the name of your union, not just a local number.
  4. Is there a shop steward or work colleague you can ask what the name of your union is? You can even ask your human resources department to tell you the full name of your union?
  5. Do you have a Union Plus Credit Card? If so, the name and logo for your international union should appear on the front of the card.

Union Plus Credit Card

Union members are automatically eligible for their union's Union Plus benefits and you do not need to be a Union Plus Credit Cardholder in order to access your union's Union Plus benefits.

But - if you are a Union Plus Credit Cardholder, you could be eligible for additional discounts.
