Union Label and Service Trades Department website

The Union Label and Service Trades Department, AFL-CIO, was founded in 1909 to promote the products and services produced in America by union members -- especially those products and services identified by a union label, shop card, store card and service button. They are supported by per capita payments from AFL-CIO National and International Unions.

They work to promote the union label. When you see a union label -- whether it is on a product, on a union shop or union store placard in a place of business, or on a union button worn by a worker - it signifies quality goods and services.

Moreover, these emblems demonstrate that the employees who make the product or provide the service are skilled workers who are treated fairly and decently by their employers.
