Union Label Week 2011
Monday, August 15, 2011
From Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 5, through Sunday, Sept. 11, 2011, American labor will observe Union Label Week— the time traditionally set aside for union families and all consumers to make a special effort to support good jobs by looking for union-made goods and union-produced services when they shop.
In these difficult times, when everyone is looking to stretch their paycheck, quality and value take on added importance—and that’s where union products and services beat the competition every time. 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.
Please join with the AFL-CIO community on Labor Day, and the week that follows, to celebrate the skills of union workers and honor the work they do by looking for union-made goods and services.
