Look for the Union Label: A Celebration of Union Logos and Emblems

Online Exhibit by Jeff Rosen and Susan Parker Sherwood

union label
This collection of over 150 images surveys union labels, their history, and related artifacts. American Union labels evolved from the seals and coats of arms of European craft unions and were a great source of tradition and pride. Beginning as early as 1880, the union label movement became an important economic tool as organized workers looked for ways to support union jobs and to protest unfair working conditions through tactics other than strikes.
