    hey brothers and sisters ....... I've tried to just "Google" this, but I keep coming up short...

    I'm wanting a list of companies and everyday stores that employ Teamsters ....
    such as Kroger .. etc...

    because I'm going to gear my family to support those stores/companies whenever possible and post them on our Union board at work and encourage others to do so also......

    thanks

    So you prefer spending more when you go to the store?
     
  3. Or maybe just supporting union labor.
    Like many of our customers do.

    There was a time where Union made or we use only Union labor was a sign of quality. Not a bunch of cheap chinese junk or who will fix my car or roof my house the cheapest. The work or product is guaranteed to last until the check clears.

    I'm OK with spending a few more bucks in order to know my work boots weren't made by a 10 year old Vietnamese girl getting paid a nickel an hour.

    Your Joint Council and/or benefits funds should be able to help you with this.

    Also, check with your Local about posting information. Typically it's required to be printed on the Local's letterhead.

    Is that when the new contract is supposed to take effect?

    I don't shop at Walmart either.

    I go to Target for my household goods.

    I will pay more for union goods, and will go out of my way to go to Target and Kroger. You get what you pay for

    Biggest step for most would be USA made- Me and wife try to get family to have a USA made Christmas- gifts- I always check labels and choose USA when can esp vegetables at the grocery store. Kmart and mejiers are best for for USA products. Good luck at Walmart. Also on amazon I check for items USA made. Just got lawn mower blades and a lawn thatcher made US which was shipped Teamsters UPS.Seeing more and more products for sale now than in the past. Also noticed an increase in parts coming in USA made for the package cars.

    Corporate d bag who visited here tried to convince us customers dont care about the union; he also believed we provide good customer service so.....
     
  19. I would like to provide good service but they don't give me the tools to do so.
