Advertising Review
On June 3, 2005, the Better Business Bureau contacted the company to
ask them what "union" they were affiliated with. Union Workers Credit
Services responded by stating "We are not affiliated with a "union."
In fact, we never represent or state that we are affiliated with any
"union." Our name refers in part to the fact we provide services to
union workers."

The company further states "As part of the many benefits we offer,
our members automatically become part of "Privileged Card International."
Part of the benefits flowing from being a member of Privilege Card
International is substantial discounts off motels, hotels and resorts
throughout the United States and world, and assistance in receiving
the lowest airfare, cruise prices and car rentals. All of those
Membership benefits are described in detail in the Membership
fulfillment package all Union Workers' members receive and at
our website."

Additional Information
Randy Walls, President of the company was formerly associated with Credicorp in Dallas, TX. Credicorp has an unsatisfactory record with the Dallas BBB.
