UIG Proudly Partners with the USA
You are Union. You are Sportsman. You Belong.
Whether stalking a buck, reeling in a largemouth bass or blasting clays on the shooting course, millions of union members spend much of their free time in the outdoors and recognize the importance of protecting access and habitat for future generations. For these union sportsmen and women, those activities are more than hobbies; they are part of a lifestyle that’s been handed down from generation to generation, much like the union brotherhood.
That’s why the AFL-CIO and many of its affiliated unions teamed up in 2007 to help launch the Union Sportsmen’s Alliance (USA), a hunting and fishing organization exclusively for union members, retirees and their families.
The USA brings together union sportsmen and women from all different trades and from all across the country and gives them a place to share their hunting and fishing stories, tips, photos and experiences through a quarterly magazine, a monthly e-newsletter, a dynamic website, member forums and USA events. The USA brings even more to the table with special discounts on U.S. and union-made outdoor gear, plus chances to win fantastic giveaways like a Triton boat and Chevy truck.
USA features hardworking and hard playing union members on its outdoor TV series, Brotherhood Outdoors. As a union member, you can apply today for a hunting or fishing trip on the show.
There has never been a better time to become part of this community of union members who share your passion for the outdoors. More USA members mean bigger and better benefits, discounts and services. More members mean more USA hunting, shooting and fishing events. More members mean a stronger, more unified effort to preserve our hunting and fishing heritage.
Union Insurance Group is extremely proud to become a national strategic partner of the Union Sportsmen’s Alliance. Become a member today at www.UnionSportsmen.org and stay tuned for more exciting news about the UIG-USA alliance.

UNION Insurance Group sponsors NASCAR Driver Renee Dupuis, No. 90
For the fourth consecutive season, UNION Insurance Group continues our sponsorship of the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Team race car driven by Renee Dupuis. With common threads including a love for car racing and both being proud members of the International Brotherhood of the Boilermakers, we couldn’t be happier to be on board for another season.
For 8 years, Renee has competed – as the lone female – with NASCAR’s ultra-competitive Whelen Modified Tour. For the uninitiated, NASCAR’s impressive WMT cars are 2,650 pound, open-wheeled machines producing in excess of 600 ground-pounding horsepower. Highlighting the annual schedule, in addition to several regional venues, our team will compete at big-league facilities like New Hampshire, Martinsville and Bristol Motor Speedways. In the 25 year history of the Tour, Renee is the only woman to earn front row starting positions and top-ten finishes.
Employed as a third generation Boilermaker, Renee continues to honor her family’s proud union tradition on staff at the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers Northeast Area Apprenticeship Program. Whether you take in a race with us out at the track, or monitor the progress of the UNION Insurance Group No. 90 machine progress from the sidelines, you are considered part of our team. Go Renee!.

UIG continues as a proud patron sponsor of Shoot For A Cure. This organization raises money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and the MS Society by hosting sporting clay shooting events.
