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.
UAW’s 2017 Vehicle Buying Guide
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.
