We realize that sometimes you may need help with a concern about using a Union Plus program. The Union Plus Member Advocacy Program, staffed by OPEIU Local 2 members, is here to help you resolve any problems. Contact us at 1-800-472-2005 (8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. ET, weekdays) or online at

How the program works

This program connects union members and their families with certified dealers who offer upfront, online pricing and Guaranteed Savings as well as show what others paid for the same car so you have the confidence that you’re getting a great deal.


  1. Select the new or used vehicle and options you want.
  2. View your upfront pricing information and/or estimated savings off MSRP*,
  3. Compare the upfront pricing information to what others are paying for the car you want on the TRUECar Price Curve.
  4. Enter your contact information to view up to 3 local dealers and lock in your Savings Certificate (There is no cost to use the program and no obligation to buy. You will not be contacted until you request a Savings Certificate).
  5. View your Certified Dealers and visit the Certified Dealer Representative with your Savings Certificate for a hassle-free car buying experience.

If you purchase a new, qualifying union-assembled vehicle, you will receive a check for $100 within 6 to 8 weeks after purchase. You will receive a $200 rebate if you purchase a qualifying new, union-made EPA Green Car. (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.  


* Between 7/1/15 and 9/30/15, the average estimated savings off MSRP presented by TrueCar Certified Dealers to users of TrueCar powered websites, based on users who configured virtual vehicles and who TrueCar identified as purchasing a new vehicle of the same make and model listed on the certificate from a Certified Dealer as of 10/31/2015, was $3,279. Your actual savings may vary based on multiple factors including the vehicle you select, region, dealer, and applicable vehicle specific manufacturer incentives which are subject to change. The Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") is determined by the manufacturer, and may not reflect the price at which vehicles are generally sold in the dealer's trade area as not all vehicles are sold at MSRP. Each dealer sets its own pricing. Neither TrueCar nor Union Plus brokers,sells or leases motor vehicles.


**Guaranteed Savings currently not available in all states. In these states, a "Target Price" is presented, which reflects a market-based example of what you can reasonably expect to pay for a vehicle configured with your desired options.

Quick, easy & saves $$$. Within 24 hrs of my transmission going out on my previous car I looked up the program, found what I wanted, the dealership called & picked me up and I was home before dinner. This is a great program. I got 2 rebates (one of which I didn't even know of). I make sure all of my local is aware of this benefit.

The information was very useful in my search for a new car lease. It was fast, easy, and the TRUECar experience took the "nervousness" factor away. Thank you, UnionPlus.

My husband and I just purchased our new car using the Union Plus auto buying program. We had an excellent experience. The online pricing tools were easy to use, and I was able to compare makes and models prior to going for a test-drive. When we were ready to purchase, the certificate was easy to download and printout. Truecar found three dealers in our area. Our experience at the dealership was truly stress-free, we were in and out in 2 hours and driving home our new vehicle. By using the Union Plus Auto Buying program, we were able to save over $3,600 off of MSRP on our fully-loaded sedan. I also registered our vehicle purchase with Truecars for their Buying Bonus Benefits, which will add to my piece of mind by covering some repair costs, insurance deductibles and giving us access to an auto expert's opinion should I have any questions about my vehicle, maintenance or repairs. Overall, I am very pleased with my auto buying experience through the Union Plus Auto Buying Program.
