Across the land, United Auto Worker (UAW) members build cars, vans and trucks. Check here for a list of union-made vehicles from UAW.
Did you know that union members can get special rebates for buying union-made vehicles?
Union members who purchase new, union-made cars through the Union Plus Auto Buying Service will receive a $100 rebate 6-8 weeks after purchase. You could also receive an additional $100 if you purchase a qualifying new, union-made EPA-approved vehicle.
How do you receive your rebates?
For the new union-made and the new union-made EPA vehicle rebates: simply use the Union Plus Auto Buying Service through TrueCar to make your new union-made and green vehicle purchase and Union Plus will be automatically notified and we'll mail you a check.
What are some of the best-selling union-made vehicles? The Ford F-150, Chevy Silverado and the Ford Escape.
UAW Members Make More than Vehicles
Did you know that in a factory in Michigan, UAW members also build houses? Or that in a plant in New York, UAW members prepare and package sugar. Or that in Tennessee, UAW members build lawn mowers. Or that in Ontario, UAW members make golf clubs.
All union members should look over this UAW guide to consumer products before we shop.
Every time we buy a UAW-made product, we help preserve the jobs of our brothers and sisters.
Let's proudly proclaim that we buy what we make because when we do, we create a better tomorrow.
