Please Think "Union" When You Do Your Holiday Shopping



 

 

Give a gift made with Union Pride.
Give a gift made with Union Pride.

November 12, 2008 - With the holiday shopping season just around the corner, you have a chance to support union principles while buying great gifts for family and friends. By selecting union-made gifts, you’ll help make the holidays even happier for other working people, their families and their communities. What’s more, you know that gifts made by union workers are of the highest quality, so you can feel good about doing good.

 

Another great way to shop is to look for products that are Fair Trade Certified™.  Fair trade advocates work to promote labor, environmental, and social policy standards to benefit working people.

The Union Label and Service Trades Department of the AFL-CIO has a website dedicated to goods and services provided by 100% Union Labor. ShopUnionMade.org has an extensive list of companies who help support their communities by employing people who earn union wages and benefits, including companies located here in New Hampshire and Maine. You’ll find something for just about anybody on your gift list atShopUnionMade.org.

Look for the union-made or fair trade labels whenever you shop at your local neighborhood small businesses. With this tough economy, and now more than ever, they need and appreciate your support.
