American Dream Sweepstakes Winners

Congratulations to our Winners!

Unions are the cornerstone of the American dream. At Union Plus, we’re proud to provide a credit card program designed specifically for hardworking union families. So to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Union Plus Credit Card Program, we gave away more than $100,000 in prizes in the American Dream Sweepstakes.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Sweepstakes and congratulations to Mr. Franklin Valone – our $30,000 Grand Prize winner – and to all the union members and Union Plus Credit Cardholders who won a $500 prize.

Watch Franklin Valone’s incredible story of how union membership pays off – sometimes when you need it most!
