Independence Day is just a little more special for union members. Between grilling our union made hot dogs and sipping our union made beer, we spend our day taking pride in the country built by ideals of solidarity.

Last year, union members submitted pictures of their union pets in the Union Plus Pet Photo Contest. With so much union pride building around 4th of July, a helpful handful wanted to make sure union members are ready to kick it up a notch this year.



12 union pets who know how to be the most patriotic on the 4th of July!


 You must stay up all night working on your outfit.


Because once you're done, Uncle Sam can eat his heart out.


 Never be afraid to stand up for what you believe in.


 But don't be too proud to beg for help (or food).


 Go ahead, show a little attitude.


...or A LOT of attitude...


...and a little cowboy...


 But always keep your friends and family close.


Shout your pride from the rooftops!


Don't forget to wave your American flag.


Or really wave your flags.


But most of all, never forgot about what union members do every day to make this country great.
