    SHOP UNION  - BUY UNION - BE UNION

     Union Labels

     

     

    Why ShopUnionMade?

    It Matters How You Shop!

    Personal consumer spending on everyday items like clothes, toothpaste, food, etc. accounts for 68 percent of all the wealth created annually in the United States. (That’s $6.8 trillion a year!)
    Source: U.S. Department of the Census

    Every Job Counts (maybe more than you think)!

    When a worker is hired, nearly five additional jobs are created somewhere else in the economy. And every time someone is laid off in the U.S., nearly five more people lose their jobs.
    Wages buy groceries, gasoline, clothing and other goods and services that keep other people working. When companies hire, they order more supplies and raw materials, creating additional jobs for vendors. When companies downsize and lay off, spending and wages are slashed and jobs vanish throughout the economy.
    It’s Economics 101: The fight for good jobs is everyone’s fight.

    When You Shop, “Vote with Your Dollars” for Good Jobs.

    It is up to you, alone. Your shopping dollars can support products made by people earning good pay and benefits. Or your dollars can support products made by -- who knows? Political prisoners in China? Child laborers in Haiti? Terrorized factory workers in a Mexican border town?
    It really is simple: Buy union and take responsibility for what your dollars do.
    “Support Good Jobs. Shop Union!”

    Look at the Price of Unjust, Unfair Trade

    At $100 a minute, you would need 9,151 years to pay off the current U.S. trade deficit. The U.S. owes foreign nations a whopping $481,000,000,000 (That’s $481 billion!)
    That’s the price of importing more than we export; of outsourcing to exploit cheap repressed labor overseas; of trade deals that ignore worker rights and the environment.
    That’s why we say: “Shop Union! Invest in good jobs for your community.”
    [Do the math: 1,440 minutes/day = 525,600 minutes/year. 525,600 min/yr x $100/min. = $52.56 million/yr. Dividing $481,000,000,000 by $52,560,000/year = 9,151 years.]

    Union Jobs = Good Jobs = Strong Communities

    The average union worker earns $760 a week, compared to $599 a week for non-union workers in the same occupations. That 27 percent difference in wages and salaries means more dignity and independence for working families. It also means more wages spent within the community, a stronger tax base and less drain on social services. “Support Good Jobs. Shop Union!”
    Source: U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics

    Union Jobs are “Ladder Up” for Poorest Workers

    Unions provide a sure path out of poverty for the poorest workers. African Americans earn 35 percent more in wages and salaries when they unionize ($665 a week, compared to $491 a week for those without a union). Latino and Latina union members earn a whopping 51 percent more ($632 a week versus $419 a week) and wages for women of all races were 33 higher for union members ($696 a week compared to $522 a week).
    “Support Good Jobs. Shop Union!”

    Unions Key to Health Care and Secure Retirement

    Did you know 73 percent of union workers enjoy medical care benefits, compared with only 51 percent of nonunion workers? And 79 percent of union workers are covered by a pension plan versus only 44 percent of nonunion workers.
    The quality of benefits is also far higher for union-represented employees. For example, 70 percent of union workers have defined-benefit pension plans (which provide guaranteed minimum benefit payments) compared to 16 percent of nonunion employees.
    Source: U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics

    Shopping Union Promotes Stable, Full-time Jobs

    Fully 50 percent of union employees have worked at least 10 years for the same employer, compared to only 22 percent of nonunion employees. Not only are union members more satisfied with their jobs, pay and benefits; they also have contracts with grievance procedures to protect against unjust firings. (Nonunion workers are "employees at will" who can be fired at any time for any reason—or for no reason.)
    Full-time workers are also twice as likely to be represented by a union. Involuntary part-time employment (common among non-union workers) is a major cause of poverty.

    We have made every effort to ensure that all products and services displayed on this web site are produced or provided by workers employed under valid union contracts. However, please be aware: many companies today produce similar or identical-looking goods and services in unionized and non-unionized facilities, and frequently shift work between these facilities without notice.
    Please notify us if you have knowledge that any good or service listed on this web site that is not union-made. We will promptly investigate all such reports and remove any good or service found not to be union-made.
    Also please notify us if a good or service listed here is being produced or provided where a lock-out or legally sanctioned strike is in effect or at a plant or company that is the subject of an official boycott. We will promptly investigate all such reports and, if warranted, attach a ‘Do Not Patronize’ notice to the listing.

    Finally: The Polo Shirt
    Posted August 15, 2006

    "Several APWU members made fashion statements at the Clerk Craft Conference, modeling new polo shirts that window clerks will be able to wear starting on Nov. 18.

    The long- and short-sleeved shirts have been the subject of long and short discussions, tests, and reviews since 2003. Vendors will begin taking orders on these shirts early in October. One of the last issues to be resolved grants retail clerks the right to wear this style any day of the week that the window is open.

    They can be purchased using the Sales and Service Associate uniform allowance. The cost is expected to be in the $30-$35 range." (Source: APWU)

    Support union jobs in the U.S. and Canada
    This guide is prepared by the UAW to provide information for consumers who want to purchase vehicles produced by workers who enjoy the benefits and protections of a union contract.

    All vehicles on this list are made in the United States or Canada by members of the United Auto Workers (UAW), Canadian Auto Workers (CAW) or the International Union of Electrical Workers-Communication Workers of America (IUE-CWA).

    Because of the integration of U.S. and Canadian vehicle production, all vehicles on this list include significant UAW-made content and support the jobs of UAW members.

    However, those vehicles marked with an asterisk (*) are sourced from the United States and another country. When purchasing one of these models, check the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN.) A VIN beginning with “1,” “4” or “5” identifies a U.S.-made vehicle; “2” identifies a Canadian-made vehicle. Not all vehicles made in the United States or Canada are made by union-represented workers. The Toyota Corolla, for example, is made in the United States by UAW members, but the Canadian model is made in a nonunion plant and other models are imported from a third country. To be sure you have a union-made vehicle, buy one of the vehicles on this list.
