May 23, 2013 - Make Memorial Day a Safe Union Holiday
Updated On: May 07, 2015

Thursday May 23, 2013

Memorial Day is the unofficial start to the summer holiday season. While the day honors those who have given their lives defending the nation, the weekend also marks the beginning of grilling season. Read the AFL-CIO and Union Plus’ suggestions on how to kick off your summer with a great start with union-made food and beverages by clicking here.

From Vienna Beef hot dogs made here in Chicago to Frito Lay snacks and Weber grills, show your support for union men and women by picking the right products to serve your friends and family. This summer, make sure to stock your barbeque with union-made products. A list from the Chicago Federation of Labor of some items available near you can be found by clicking here.


Travel Safely!

The National Safety Council released its estimates of fatalities from traffic crashes for the upcoming Memorial Day holiday weekend, which begins at 6 p.m. on Friday, May 24, and ends at 11:59 p.m. on Monday, May 27. The Council estimates 407 traffic fatalities and another 43,500 medically consulted injuries may occur over the traditional summer kick-off weekend from motor vehicle collisions. It also is estimated that 148 lives may be saved this Memorial Day holiday period by buckling up.

To ensure a safe Memorial Day holiday weekend, NSC recommends drivers:

  • Refrain from all cell phone use - both hands-free and handheld - behind the wheel
  • Always remember to wear your seat belt and place children in age-appropriate safety seats
  • Allow plenty of travel time to avoid frustration and diminish the impulse to speed
  • Drive defensively and exercise caution, especially during inclement weather
  • Avoid driving while drowsy
  • Don’t drink and drive! Even moderate consumption of alcohol impairs reaction time and driving judgment
