"Buy Union" Lists 

Buy Union List-Maintained by the AFL-CIO Union Label and Service Trades Department.
National Directory of Union Goods and Services--Maintained by the CLC.
UAW Consumer Buying Guide -- Listing of cars, trucks and other products made with UAW labor.  (Do you really want that sweet-looking Mitsubishi?  According to the UAW, if it's a Galant or an Eclipse, it's OK.)
Union Print Shops - Want that bug on your business cards?  The GCIU lets you search by state.  Generously, they do not limit their search to GCIU shops, but include all Allied Printing Trades Council shops.
Union Hotels - The bug may be OK on your business cards, but not in your bed.  HERE has compiled a searchable list of union hotels.

Boycott Lists:

National Boycotts Sanctioned by the AFL-CIO
CLC-Sanctioned Boycotts
HERE Boycotts - A listing of hotels where there are active labor disputes.
Behind the Label -- News and information about sweatshops and the garment industry.
Boycott NIKE! (Including a list of other anti-NIKE sites)
Boycott NIKE (with emphasis on Viet Nam)
(Personal commentary--Several years ago a number of civil rights organizations criticized Nike for targeting African-Americans with its marketing, while it had virtually no African-Americans in its upper management. I have always thought this effort was misguided. The problem with Nike is that it has utterly rejected the ethic originally propounded by Walter Reuther, and later adopted by Henry Ford, that in order to create a prosperous and stable society, you must produce usable and affordable products, manufactured by a well-paid class of workers who can afford to actually consume the products you produce. Instead, Nike is a bunch of white guys who have made themselves very rich by using a massive marketing machine to create a demand--particularly among the economically disadvantaged--for an overpriced product of marginal utility, manufactured overseas by impoverished workers receiving little more than slave wages.)
Clean Clothes Campaign
Sweatshop Watch -- A coalition of labor, community, civil rights, immigrant rights, women's, religious & student organizations, and individuals committed to eliminating sweatshop conditions in the global garment industry.
