WASHINGTON, D.C. — Looking for a union-made Valentine card for your Union Maid?
Teamsters can support their brothers and sisters in the Graphic Communications Conference (GCC) by looking for cards they make with the "GCC" or "Allied Printing Trades" label.
And more than 500 Teamsters make American Greetings cards in Kentucky. Teamsters have represented these workers for more than 25 years. The members of Local 89 make most American Greetings cards available, but a small percentage of them are made in China. If you see a card and it does not say “Made in China,” it was made by Teamsters.
If your sweetie has a sweet tooth, remember to buy union-made candy. The AFL-CIO offers a shopping list of union-made candy.
