Ohio USW member among winners of mortgage sweepstakes

Mike Arnett, a Steelworkers member and father of five, was surprised and happy to learn he’d won $1,000 in a sweepstakes for Union Plus mortgage holders. "It was a very nice bonus. The money came in handy at the perfect time," he said.

Ohio USW member among winners of mortgage sweepstakes

Mike Arnett, a Lewiston, Ohio, resident and United Steel Workers (USW) Local 608 member, settled into a manufacturing job with Clearwater Papers six years ago. Shortly thereafter, as his family started expanding, Arnett decided it was time to purchase a home.

He became a homeowner in 2017 through the Union Plus Mortgage Program.

With financing available through Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, the Union Plus Mortgage Program helps union members, their parents and their children purchase or refinance their homes while also offering exclusive union member benefits.

Arnett praised his Wells Fargo loan officer and her husband, who also works at Clearwater Papers.

"[My loan officer] made it a really great experience for me," Arnett recalls. "She told me all the steps I needed to take to get things squared away on my end. With her making most of the phone calls for me, it was an awesome experience. And [her husband] was super helpful with all the union stuff, which was new to me at that point."

Arnett was recently selected as a $1,000 winner in the 2021 Union Plus Happy Homeowner Sweepstakes for Union Plus mortgage holders.

"I was really surprised to win," Arnett says. "It was a very nice bonus. I have five kids, and they went back to school in August. So, the money came in handy at the perfect time."
