When you purchase gifts, food and refreshments for the holidays, buying union not only ensures you receive the best-made products; it’s also in keeping with the spirit of the season, because you are supporting your sisters and brothers and striking a blow for economic justice.
In virtually every category of gifts, food and beverages, you can find world-class, affordable union options. And every time you do, you’ll support good jobs with middle class wages and strong benefits, a voice in the workplace, jobsite safety, and a more fair, inclusive economy.
Just to give a few examples, you can buy clothes by Joseph Abboud, shoes by Nunn-Bush, games like Clue and Cranium, sports equipment like Louisville Slugger bats, tools like Armstrong and Black & Decker, stocking stuffers like Ghirardelli and Hershey chocolates, and beer like Budweiser and Busch. In addition, be sure to do your shopping at union stores, like Safeway and Kroger supermarkets, and many Macy’s Department Stores.
The guide listed below was published by the AFL-CIO from a wide variety of union sources, and it also includes links to other sites listing union-made and union-sold products.
We wish you a very happy and union-friendly holiday season!
