Shopping tips for Halloween candy

Posted on October 4, 2012
  • print

This Halloween make sure the treats you give out are union-made by American workers.  You'll be supporting jobs here at home, showing solidarity, and making your trick-or-treaters very happy!

Did you know that members of the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union (BCTGM), United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW), and members of the United Farm Workers of America (UFW) make some of the most popular Halloween candy?

Candy Corn, Hershey chocolate, Baby Ruth, Butterfinger, Kit Kat, Rolos, and more are all union-made. See the full list of all of the candy and snack products that are made in America by your fellow union members.

Text CANDY to 22555 to have this list sent to your cell phone.  

Just for fun: Play the Union Plus Halloween spooky game - and share with your friends and family through Facebook or email.

Help if you don’t know your union

Your union membership dictates which Union Plus benefits you are eligible to use.

  1. What your national union’s name (not just your local number)? Scroll through the list we have to see if you recognize your union.
  2. What type of work do you do (select your occupation)?
  3. Do you have a union member card or union publication/letter that shows the name of your union? Find something with the name of your union, not just a local number.
  4. Is there a shop steward or work colleague you can ask what the name of your union is? You can even ask your human resources department to tell you the full name of your union?
  5. Do you have a Union Plus Credit Card? If so, the name and logo for your international union should appear on the front of the card.

Union Plus Credit Card

Union members are automatically eligible for their union's Union Plus benefits and you do not need to be a Union Plus Credit Cardholder in order to access your union's Union Plus benefits.

But - if you are a Union Plus Credit Cardholder, you could be eligible for additional discounts.
