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).

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.
