Cooking Out the Union WayFriday, August 3, 2012
(Metropolitan Washington Council, AFL-CIO)From hotdogs and sausages to condiments, chips, and even ice cream, the AFL-CIO’s handy new downloadable “Made In America” cookout shopping list has everything you need to celebrate the summer while supporting union workers. Not only are the items on the list union-made, but they can also be purchased from UFCW Local 400 members at local Shoppers, Giant, and Safeway stores. “It’s more important than ever to bring jobs back home on American soil in order to rebuild the middle class” said Local 400 President McNutt. You can download the list before your next shopping trip and encourage friends to help bring good jobs home while supporting local union shops with the list on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest.
