Why purchase this Tin Over Cardboard Union Motel AFL - CIO Sign?

Founded in 1955, the AFL-CIO brought together a variety of unions to strengthen each of their hands collectively. Union members and leaders have fought passionately for workers' rights throughout American history, dealing with issues as diverse as member safety, pay, and collective bargaining. While union membership is waning in the ever changing economy, their role in the development of the America that we know today cannot be separated from the history of American unions. For that reason, this sign would make a fantastic choice not just for union members and relatives of union members, but also for any collector who appreciates the history of the American workforce.

This sign recognized that a hotel was a union business and encouraged members and supporters of organized labor to support it. The sign is single sided and composed of tin over cardboard. This piece weighs about a pound and measures 11" x 6". While most other signs like this one were used heavily, this one remains in Excellent condition. This cardboard sign would make a great addition to any labor themed collection, as well as any collection of Americana writ large.
