Is it worth the fees?
-If I switch, my activation fees will be waived because I'm a member of a credit union (Total of $108 saved (3 lines will be activated))
-I will receive a monthly discount of %17 off because of my current employer
-Sprint will 'Buy Back' my current US Cellular equipment (I'll get around $200 based on what the rep calculated)
Saving all of the fees mentioned above and getting a decent credit applied towards ...
You cant have your fees waived because of Credit Union disc and then have employer disc of 17%. Both of those are called NVP discounts. The CU one carries 10%. 17% is nice so pay the act fee and then use the 17% you save more down the road than the $36 up front. Check sprint.com and our telesales they and see if there are any fee waive promos or port in credit promos, 866-789-8292.
but switching from a regional carrier to a national carrier totally worth it,but of course i work for sprint so thats just my opinion
You have to have the discount already setup as a customer to get those activation fees waived, seeing as your not a customer, it would not be waived automatically.

Also, what plan do you have? Depending on which one may not have to sign contracts now but will when you go to Sprint, you would also then potentially lose the ability to earn monthly points, have battery swap, overage protection and overage cap. And you'd be leaving the #1 rated national carrier by consumer reports. It is a lot to consider.
