A celebration of Union Logos and Emblems.

The use of emblems to denote workers in a particular craft predates the advent of the modern union label by many centuries.  Craft guilds, which had become widespread as a form of organization by the 1400s, often decorated their halls and seals with a visual symbol of either the tools or the product of their art – or both. The carpenters’ dividers or compasses that once graced the coat of arms of a craft guild now served as the mark of a labor union. Learn all about it at SanFranciscoStateUniversity.
