"Brotherhood Outdoors" is the only union-dedicated, outdoor television show, and it showcases hardworking union members in an effort to teach Americans what union brotherhood is all about. It also provides viewers with tips on hunting and fishing and, in 2011, it took home the Sportsman Channel's 2011 award for best combination (hunting/fishing) show.  Since then, the series has only gotten better and it's up for three awards this year, and you can help make sure the show is a winner!
