It’s always a thrill for us to see our work “in action,” especially when presidential candidates are involved!
UNITE HERE chose Ethix Merch to produce ethical t-shirts for a protest in Las Vegas, and both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders joined the Culinary and Bartender Unions’ demonstration! They are organizing against Hospital Corporation of America’s stall tactics surrounding healthcare negotiations. Their demonstration in favor of reasonable, sustainable healthcare rates for patient care for the union members and their families were supported by Sanders and Clinton.
You can find out more about the protest and see video of the candidates walking with union workers on UNITE HERE’s press page.
Culinary Workers Local 226 and Bartenders Local 165 are affiliates of UNITE HERE, representing over 57,000 workers in Las Vegas and Reno, including most of the casino resorts on the Las Vegas Strip. UNITE HERE represents 270,000 workers in gaming, hotel, and food service industries in North America. We are proud to help them advance their cause by providing them with USA Made, Union Made t-shirts supporting their agenda.
