As you fill your cart with Thanksgiving Day fixings, double check that you are supporting good jobs and America’s middle class by purchasing union made in America products. We can all do our small part to support our brothers and sisters who make great food items to put on our table next Thursday.
From Ocean Spray products, some of which are made right here in Wisconsin by members of the Machinists Union, to Birdseye Vegetables made in Darien, WI by United Food and Commercial Workers to Pillsbury crescent rolls, made by Bakery, Confectionary, Tobacco and Grain Millers workers -- there’s a bounty of union made food items to choose from. You can even serve your meal on union made plates with union made cutlery.
We wish everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving from the Wisconsin AFL-CIO. Thanksgiving is a time to reflect and give thanks for all the positives in our life. We are thankful for a vibrant, diverse and engaged family of union men and women who are willing to join together to advance work place rights and leave the world of work better for the next generation.
