Support union jobs in the U.S. and Canada

This guide is prepared by the UAW to provide information for consumers who want to purchase vehicles produced by workers who enjoy the benefits and protections of a union contract.

All these vehicles are made in the United States or Canada by members of the United Auto Workers (UAW), Canadian Auto Workers (CAW) or International Union of Electrical Workers-Communications Workers of America (IUE).

Because of the integration of U.S. and Canadian vehicle production, all these vehicles include significant UAW-made content and support the jobs of UAW members.

However, those marked with an asterisk (*) are sourced from the United States and another country.

When purchasing one of these models, check the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).

A VIN beginning with "1", "4" or "5" identifies a U.S.-made vehicle; "'2:' identifies a Canadian-made vehicle.

Not all vehicles made in the United States or Canada are built by union-represented workers. The Toyota Corolla, for example, is made in the United States by UAW members, but the Canadian model is made in a nonunion plant and other models are imported from a third country.

*Vehicles marked with an asterisk are produced in more than one country, but all models made in the United States are assembled by UAW members.

York patties are moving to Mexico too, aren't they?

And, on a side note, Hershey and Nestle products which may also be (in some cases) union made are also produced through West African Child slave labor. The harvesting of the cocoa is done more often then not through child slavery.

I find it difficult on this one specific issue to just be pro-US labor and not completely understand how our love of chocolate destroys entire communities in africa.

I think I read that the Cadillac ESV production is moving to a non-union plant in Mexico. Any truth to that?
