Mother’s Day is less than a week away (May 10), so you have no excuse for waiting until the last minute to find a nice tribute for mom that also carries the union label. Our friends at  Labor 411 , the union business directory from the  Los Angeles County Federation of Labor , can help you out.

If you want to go the traditional route with some top-of-the-line chocolates, take a look at these from the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers ( BCTGM ) and United Food and Commercial Workers ( UFCW ). 

Chocolates

  • See’s Candies
  • Godiva
  • Ghirardelli
  • Almond Roca
  • Russell Stover

If she deserves a little pampering, try health and beauty products made by UFCW and UAW members.

Beauty Products

  • Avon
  • Caress skin care
  • Dove beauty care
  • Lander personal care
  • Revlon

If you typically send flowers,  Union Plus members receive a 25% discount at Teleflora .

If your mom enjoys an occasional libation—particularly on her special day—click here for a list of beverages, from small batch bourbons like Basil Hayden's, Blanton’s and Booker's; beers, from Bud to Goose Island; and wines and champagne, from fruity screw tops to fine vintages. Mother’s Day cocktail hour is brought to you by the Machinists ( IAM ), Operating Engineers ( IUOE ), Teamsters ( IBT ), United Farm Workers ( UFW ), UAW and UFCW .

All this week, Union Plus is thanking union moms everywhere for the way they support our union families. Follow them on Facebook , Twitter and Instagram . If you are a union member with an awesome #UnionMom, join in the conversation by posting to social media with the hashtag #UnionMom .
