Calling all Community Leaders - Lead the Ethical Consumer Movement in your Town!

Dear Ethical Consumer,

Labor Day is almost here, and the Ethical Consumer Movement is starting to gain some exciting momentum.

A big thank you goes out to our latest sponsor, the United Auto Workers (UAW) whose generous support is helping the Labor 411 Foundation further our outreach efforts for the Ethical Consumer Movement and for our BuyBlue campaign.

The Ethical Consumer Movement is a program of the Labor 411 Foundation. Our mission is to ensure a healthy, robust middle class by advocating for good jobs for everyone. Through our research, education and advocacy, we promote practices that create and protect good American jobs.

This grassroots effort organizes consumers to use their wallets and voting power to send a clear message to employers that the public wholeheartedly embraces the fair treatment of all workers.

With the support of organizations like the UAW, we have developed an Ethical Consumer Movement Tool Kit to give consumers ideas on how they can be ethical spenders everytime they go to the store and open their wallets.

The tool kit is scheduled to launch on Labor Day.

To ignite the Ethical Consumer Movement in your community, contact us and we’ll send you an organizer’s toolkit with tips on how to recruit team members, how to structure meetings, and how to teach others how to use their dollars and votes to build a better America!

To receive a copy of the Ethical Consumer Movement Tool Kit, contact spike@labor411foundation.org or call 818-884-8966 ext 1103.

One more thing – if you’re planning on buying a car on Labor Day, don’t forget to Buy American!

The UAW

 

The International Union, United Automobile, Aerospace and Agricultural Implement Workers of America (UAW) is one of the largest and most diverse unions in North America, with members in virtually every sector of the economy. Since its founding in 1935, the UAW has consistently developed innovative partnerships with employers and negotiated industry-leading wages and benefits for its members. UAW members have benefited from a number of collective bargaining breakthroughs, including:

  • The first employer-paid health insurance plan for industrial workers.
  • The first cost-of-living allowances.
  • A pioneering role in product quality improvements.
  • Landmark job and income security provisions.
  • Comprehensive training and educational programs.
