For all practical purposes, fall is here. And fall means it’s time for the start of another new school year, with kids, parents and teachers shopping for back-to-school supplies, as well as for fall clothes and other “summer’s-over” merchandise.

When hitting your local stores and shopping online, remember: You can play an important role in protecting jobs and the labor movement by buying union-manufactured, American-made products from labor-friendly businesses.

NYSUT and Labor 411 are providing here a list of products to help in the effort. Through socially conscious shopping, you can send a strong message that you support American jobs, fair wages and safe working conditions.

Like the classic song says, "Look for the union label."
