Union labels are used to mark products that are union-made and indicate which union manufactured the product. This collection is composed primarily of photographic facsimiles of official union labels and logos of the AFL, CIO, AFL-CIO and many of the federations' affiliated unions. Some folders include textual material that provides anecdotal or historical information about a union label or logo.
This collection includes an incomplete run (circa 1960s and 1970s) of the English-language edition of El Malcriado, a newspaper published by the United Farm Workers. The collection also contains miscellaneous newspaper clippings and two publications regarding agricultural labor issues.
