Since 1991, the Union Plus Scholarship Program has awarded more than $5 million to students of working families who want to begin or continue their post-secondary education.

The I.U.P.A. is pleased and proud of Mr. Daniel Padron of Lake Worth, Florida, son of Fernando Padron who is a member of I.U.P.A. Local 6020. Daniel was a recipient of the Union Plus Scholarship in 2021 and 2022. The I.U.P.A. works continuously to ensure that our members and their families enjoy the best benefits possible and this is a great example of those important benefits paying off. An article was published about Daniel and this achievement in the I.U.P.A. Briefing Room previously that you can read here.

In President Cabral’s statement about Daniel being awarded the scholarship, he stated, “I join with Daniel’s parents, I.U.P.A. Local 6020, and all of the I.U.P.A. in being truly proud of this inspiring, driven young man who I am quite certain has a very promising future ahead of him.”

In his application for the scholarship, Daniel said, “I.U.P.A. has been instrumental in negotiating fair contracts and mediating disputes with different cities and municipalities.” He continued, “Unions have helped workers throughout history and they are more important than ever today.”

The I.U.P.A. has a variety of education benefits available to members and their families.
