Why Buy Union-Made Branded Merchandise

High-Quality Products

Unionized workers often take pride in their craft and have a voice in maintaining quality standards. Unions work to ensure that their members receive adequate training and resources, leading to higher-quality products. By choosing union-made products, you can have greater confidence in the quality and durability of the products.

Supporting Local Economies

Union workers generally spend their earnings within their communities, supporting local businesses and contributing to the growth of their local economy. By purchasing union-made products, you contribute to local economic activity which has a ripple effect on the US economy at large.

Fair Wages and Safe Working Conditions

Union-made products are typically produced by workers who are part of a labor union. Labor unions negotiate with employers to secure fair wages, benefits, and safe working conditions for their members. By purchasing union-made products, you support these efforts and contribute to the well-being of workers.

Job Stability

Unionized workplaces often have provisions in place to protect workers’ job security. Unions negotiate contracts that often include provisions such as seniority rights, protection against unjust layoffs, and procedures for addressing workplace issues. By buying union-made products, you support the preservation of stable employment opportunities.

Better Benefits and Social Protections

Unions advocate for comprehensive benefits packages for their members, including healthcare coverage, retirement plans, paid time off, and other social protections. By choosing union-made products, you help sustain these benefits for workers, promoting their overall welfare.

Unions are membership-driven, democratic organizations governed by laws that require financial transparency and integrity, as well as fair representation of all workers. Research shows that the growth of union jobs correlates to higher wages for the lowest-paid workers. Unions provide a way for workers to stand together in support of their legal and moral rights to fair working conditions and compensation.

Are Union Made Promotional Products Also USA Made?

Most of EthixMerch union made products are made in facilities where employers recognize the value of a union made label. At this time, most of these union factories are located in the United States, so we carry a number of “Made in USA” union products. We recognize the common struggle of the manufacturing working class globally, and believe stronger unions in the US support the efforts of organizers abroad. We are always on the lookout for union made goods produced outside of the United States, and will add those products to our catalog as they become available.

Union Made And Eco-Friendly

Right now, products that are both union made and eco-friendly are in short supply. Ethix is in a unique position to encourage higher environmental standards in union factories and, on the flip side, to promote worker organizing efforts in factories producing eco-friendly products. Increasingly, the labor and environmental movements are working in common cause, and we will do everything possible to help this essential partnership thrive.
