Spend your tax refund on American-made,union-made products

Our brothers and sisters at the AFL-CIO have some great ideas for spending your tax refund on American-made, union-made products.

  • Buy an American car. For a list of vehicles made by our brothers and sisters at the UAW, click here
  • Buy tires made in America. To find out how, click here.  
  • Buy union-made appliances. Click on this chart here for the model numbers for union-made General Electric washers, dryers, dishwashers, refrigerators, along with other home appliances.
  • Buy union-made sporting goods. Click on Labor 411's directory of athletic equipment here
  • Take a union vacation. Click on the Union Plus Travel Center here or download UNITE HERE's Union Hotel & Casino Guide here
If you didn't get a tax refund, but had to pay taxes instead, consider a union-made adult beverage. Click here for a list of union-made beers and whiskies or here for union-made wines and champagnes.

Happy shopping!
