UFCW member among winners of Union Plus Mortgage Sweepstakes

Josh Schrader, a United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) Local 431 member, and his wife purchased their first home in 2016. Schrader, a longtime Wells Fargo customer, was happy to secure a home loan through the bank.

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.

"Wells Fargo is all we’ve ever known," Schrader says. "They are trustworthy, and the union has close contact with them. It made sense to go with Wells Fargo."

Schrader, a Knoxville, Iowa, resident, recently learned he was among the winners of the 2021 Union Plus Happy Homeowner Sweepstakes, which was open to union members with a Union Plus mortgage. His family won $1,0000.

"There’s a lot going on for us right now, so we were very excited to win the sweepstakes," Schrader says.

The Schraders recently enjoyed the birth of their second child and are in the process of home renovations.

Schrader says that his sweepstakes win has caught the attention of his coworkers.

"More people at work are looking into Union Plus because of me winning the sweepstakes. It was an eye-opener for a lot of people," he notes. "If you’re in the union, you might as well take advantage of all the benefits you can to help yourself and your family."

Schrader also endorses home ownership.

"You get a lot more if you own your own place,” he says. “You’re the boss, and you can do what you want."
