Union Label

When you see a union label -- whether it is on a product, on a union shop or union store placard in a place of business, or on a union button worn by a worker - it signifies quality goods and services.

Moreover, these emblems demonstrate that the employees who make the product or provide the service are skilled workers who are treated fairly and decently by their employers.

Union labels are symbols of quality and fair play and are found everywhere, from washing machines to baked goods, from shoes to skyscrapers, from clothing to barber shops. They are evidence of quality goods and services produced by proud American workers.

A Union Label product attempts to eliminate one commodity fetish. With this label you can trust easier that the product was made in a conscientious manner. American made products are likely to be produced closer to Manhattan, reducing the amount of energy used to get the product here. They are produced in a socially responsible manner and without using child or other exploitative labor in other countries.
