Fiesta! Dinnerware- Union Made
Fiesta Dinnerware is union made.
The AFL-CIO blog writes about the Homer Laughlin China Co.,makers of Fiesta Ware.
Since 1939, Laughlin employees have had their own union. Some 650 of them now are proud members of Glass, Molders, Pottery, Plastic and Allied Workers (GMP) Local 419.
Specializing in high-fired, lead- free glazes with an Alpha Alumina body, Homer Laughlin remains the largest domestic pottery employing over 1100 skilled workers in a 37 acre facility. As a leader in the china design and manufacturing market, Homer Laughlin has pursued the issues that matter most: lead-free product, durability, contemporary design and timely delivery.
