(Dec. 11, 2018) — As you search for perfect holiday gifts for your loved ones, remember to look for the union label so your presents give the gift of good jobs. Below is a wide range of gift possibilities, from clothes to games to sports equipment and more, made by union-members across the country.

The Washington State Labor Council’s Union Goods and Services Committee has posted Buy Union, Washington! providing links to various resources — both in the state and nationally — to identify union-made goods and services, and unionized stores where you can do your shopping. Another great resource is Labor 411, which regularly updates lists of union-made food, beverages and gifts for various specific occasions. For example, check out it’s union-made shopping lists for general holiday giftsgifts for her, gifts for him, and gifts for kids.

The following list was compiled by the AFL-CIO from Union Plus, Labor 411, the AFL-CIO Union Label and Service Trades Department (UL&STD), and the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers (BCTGM) website.
