Every dollar is a vote. When we spend our hard-earned dollars on union-made and USA-made goods, we vote for a strong labor movement and a thriving national economy. We show solidarity every time we support goods and services produced by our hardworking sisters and brothers. This guide celebrates the excellence of UAW members. You may browse the products and services provided by UAW members in each region. There is also a section where you can review consumer available products by category. We hope you make the choice to support our UAW members by spending your money on products and services they make possible. Finding union-made products can be difficult because few items are labeled “union-made.” However, this guide provides you with a list of tools for locating UAW-made goods
