Labor Day is just around the corner. And what a year it has been for the labor movement! With workers standing strong together in Hollywood, at hotels all over Los Angeles, at UPS, and at the Big Three automakers, it has been a hot labor summer indeed.

If you’re like us, you’ll probably enjoy a good cookout or picnic during Labor Day. We’ve put together the list below of union-made foods and drinks so you can support good jobs on a day that is all about union members.
