Our Visa STEEL cards come with unique benefits designed specifically for union members and their families.
For union members:
Strike Relief: Defer payments on your Visa account for up to three months if you go out on a Union sanctioned strike or lockout.
Union Rebate: A rebate of 1% of the annual interest paid on your Visa account will be donated to the preferred charity of your Union. So the more you use your card, the more you’re supporting your union interests.
For union members and their families:
Loyalty Deposit: Earn 1% cash back on the annual interest paid on your Visa account. This cash back is paid as a dividend at the end of each calendar year.

“We wouldn’t trade OE Federal for the world, they treat us like family and they’re very efficient. We especially love the Visa STEEL Rewards Card and use it mainly for our business. Yearly, we redeem our Rewards Points for cash and use them for business related expenses.”
Strike Relief: To be eligible for Strike Relief, you must meet the following requirements: (1) you must have worked at least 20 hours per week during the 30-day period before the official strike; (2) you must be a cardholder for at least one year; (3) your account must be in good standing; (4) you must be on strike or lockout for 30 or more consecutive days within the last six months. Strike relief will defer your monthly minimum payment for up to 3 months from when you begin your strike.

Individual members and Unions do not receive a tax benefit from the donations made by the Credit Union through this program.
