I WORKED FOR M&M MARS INC. FROM 1969 TO 1976, THEY WEREN'T UNION THEN AND THE SAME FAMILY STILL OWNS IT SO I DOUBT IF THEY'RE UNION NOW.

I grew up on the South side of Chicago and more than anything I remember the Tootsie Roll plant on the South side and my love of their product. I hope they are union-made-in-in-America company. If so please include them on your list. I love the new Tootsie Fruit Rolls.

I work at Guittard Chocolate Company, and we are also a union shop; I would appreciate if you would add us to the list

I dont know if they are Union or not, but they used to be located in Chicago on Narragansett Avenue. I grew up down the street from them.

What a great resource. It's nice to know when we're supporting union members and how to make the appropriate choices to do so.

I do not see Mars listed. Does anyone know if the company is a union shop?
