This is the weekend many of us will head to the stores to stock up on our July 4 supplies for the summer’s top cookout event. To celebrate the Fourth with a Made in America, union label, check out our union-made list below, compiled from the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers (BCTGM), the LA Labor 411's website, Union Plus and the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW)
Michael Messina at Labor 411 reminds us that beyond our outdoor feast supplies, there are some other July 4 necessities that carry a union label, including American flags by Artflag and Annin Flagmakers, coolers by Igloo and Rubbermaid, the Weber Q series grill, sunscreen by Coppertone and Bain de Soleil and—punch up Toby Keith on the iPod—red Solo cups.
