While all the bargain hunters camp out and stampede for Black Friday specials in malls today, you can shop union online. From the comfort of your own home with a cup of coffee and maybe a piece of leftover pumpkin pie, you can find some bargains for the activists on your list at the new AFL-CIO Online Store—Union Made.TM 

The mini shopping site provides much of the same apparel, caps, buttons, bumper stickers and other items that were found at The Union Shop OnlineTM before it closed in April.

You can proudly wear or give the union label with a great “Union Made” black hoodie or be a bit more provocative with the “Kicking Ass for the Working Class” T-shirt. Don’t forget the classic Rosie the Riveter “We Can Do It” long sleeve T-shirt. There is the always popular “Got a Boss? Get a Union” coffee mug.

On the clearance shelves are a whole batch of buttons, bumper stickers and lapel pins.

You’re bound to find some holiday gifts and stocking stuffers and it’s guaranteed you’ll find a close parking space. What’s not to like?
