Memorial day bbq

It's finally summer!

Well, not officially until June. But on Memorial Day weekend, we find any excuse to run outside, hop in the pool, and fire up the grill.

Enjoying our weekend and remembering those who protect us, union members can also thank members of the United Food & Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW), the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union (BCTGM), and the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAMAW) by filling our plates with union-made food.

Here are 13 of our favorite Memorial Day recipes that both make the mouth water and use union-made ingredients!


For more ways to buy union for your Memorial Day weekend, check out our union-made guide to outdoor grilling and picnicslist of union-made beers, and the AFL-CIO's complete union-made memorial day barbeque shopping list.
