Union Label

Buying Union Made

The union label committee promotes the importance of purchasing products and supporting services coming from union shops and made or delivered by union members under collectively bargained for working conditions. In addition, it increases members’ awareness of those products and services produced and rendered under non-union conditions and by anti-labor manufacturers and service providers. By increasing awareness, union members can better promote those companies that provide others their union won wages and benefits.

The UAW’s 2017 Vehicle Buying Guide

UAW Union-Built VehiclesThese vehicles are made in the United States or Canada by members of the UAW and Canada’s Unifor
union, formerly the Canadian Auto Workers (CAW). Because of the integration of United States and Canadian
vehicle production, all the vehicles listed made in Canada include significant UAW-made content and
support the jobs of UAW members.
However, those marked with an asterisk (*) are produced in the United States and another country.
The light-duty, 1500 model crew-cab versions of the vehicles marked with a double asterisk (**) are
manufactured in the United States and Mexico. When purchasing one of these models, check the Vehicle
Identification Number (VIN). A VIN beginning with “1” or “4” or “5” identifies a U.S.-made vehicle; “2”
identifies a Canadian-made vehicle.
Not all vehicles made in the United States or Canada are built by union-represented workers. Vehicles not
listed here, even if produced in the United States or Canada, are not union made.
