Made in America: Union-Made Easter and Passover

Made in America: Union-Made Easter and Passover

Easter’s still a ways off, but if you want to get a head start on a union-made-in-America treat-filled Easter basket and other accoutrements, here’s a good place to start from the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor's resource site, Labor 411. Passover begins this year at sundown April 14 and runs through April 22. As you plan your holiday observances, here are some union-made-in-America recipe ingredients and drinks you may want to include in your seder and throughout Passover. 

These Easter and Passover shopping list ideas are brought to you by the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers (BCTGM), the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW), the Machinists (IAM), United Farm Workers (UFW) and the Teamsters (IBT).
