Look for and ask for the International Allied Printing Trades Council label—the familiar “bug”—on all printed material.
The bug is your assurance of quality and craftsmanship. The bug also guar-antees that the men and women who work on your printed materials receive decent wages and benefits in plants that practice responsible labor-management relations. The label must include the city name and number identifying the exact union printing plant where the work was produced.
The Allied Printing Trades Council is made up of the Printing, Publishing, and Media Workers Sector (PPMWS) of the Communications Workers of America and the Graphic Communications Conference (GCC) a division of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters. Both the GCC and the PPMWS have distinct labels identifying the shop at which the materials were printed. ■
