THE LABEL APP
PROTECTS & INFORMS
Union labels protect your jobs, wages, and benefits – and the label app makes it easy to scan them and report unlabeled product. But the app does much more.
Use the app to:
- Read news you can use in the Members’ Journal and union news.
- Report jobsite issues on safety and nonunion workers or materials.
- Check the Sheet Metal Job Bank for opportunities nationwide.
- Link to SMART sites on training, benefits, and more.
It’s the critical tool for protecting you and giving you information you want and need.
