(Feb. 3, 2016) — Our beloved Seattle Seahawks — whose players are affiliates of the Washington State Labor Council, AFL-CIO — may not be playing in Super Bowl 50 this Sunday, but some of you may be watching the game anyway with family and friends. So you might as well support good family-wage union jobs by serving up union-made food and drinks at your gathering.
