A message from the Washington Area AFL-CIO:
The 10 days following Thanksgiving are designated by the AFL-CIO as “Buy Union” week, to encourage all union members to look for union-made goods and services when they buy for the Holiday Season. When you buy union, you’re supporting good jobs in American communities, jobs that provide living wages and benefits, safe working conditions and dignity and respect for work. Shoppers will find plenty of “bargains,” but union family shoppers will want to look beyond foreign-made electronics, trendy toys and gadgets to find enduring goods that are union made, or perhaps gift cards for union-productions, such as movies or sporting events, or union made foods - there are still many union-made candies, baked goods, spirits and specialty items.
