I am glad to have this information. Unfortunately, many of the chocolate companies listed here, while union, rely on child slave labor to harvest and process cacao. The companies that do so are ADM Cocoa, Barry Callebaut, Cargill, Fowler's Chocolate, Godiva, Hershey's, Kraft, Mars, and Nestle. I hope others find helpful guidance in this information.

SunMaid raisins are packaged in a union facility where I'm employed. However, some of their storage and processing plants are non-union. Perhaps more research is needed before adding us to the list.

Happy to see this list an proud to share it ! As a member of GCC-IBT local 415-S , my plant makes a majority of the display and shipper boxes for the M&M Mars Inc .

With the recent closing of the last union oreo plant in Chicago and move to Mexico, this product should be removed from the list.

I'm sort of with the past comment m DDD e by Debra. Hard to support Hershey was when they move there company to Mexico people in USA loss there livelihood so they can get cheep labor and sell back to us high. I'm sorry

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

On 10/14/14 Debra said:

I will not purchase any Hershey product because they closed a plant here in California and 600 workers lost their jobs. Not sure if this plant was union, but the principal was the workers weren't given notice. Plus, the plant was moved to Mexico!

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?
