Nashville, TN—The Union Sportsmen’s Alliance (USA) is pleased to announce a new partnership with Carhartt, the nation’s leading brand manufacturer of rugged workwear produced in the United States.
Established during Carhartt’s launch of its new ‘Made in America’ line, this unique partnership aligns the Michigan-based manufacturer with North America’s premier hunting, fishing and conservation organization for AFL-CIO union members and their families.
“Carhartt has always been a brand focused on the American worker and for them to step-up and produce seven of their most popular products in the U.S. with union labor is a testament to their continued commitment to American manufacturing,” said USA Deputy Director Mike d’Oliveira. “We couldn’t be more pleased than to have this opportunity to partner with an iconic brand like Carhartt.”
From the jobsite to the field, Carhartt’s new line will be showcased through the organization’s Boots on the Ground conservation initiative which addresses the USA’s mission to unite the union community to expand and improve hunting and fishing access and wildlife habitat throughout North America. The sponsorship will also be highlighted through its popular sporting clays and trap shoot series, an emerging banquet program and social media efforts.
“Carhartt is proud to partner with USA-an organization that aligns so closely with our passion for hard work and a love of the outdoors,” said Tim Humes, Brand Marketing Manager for Carhartt. “We are honored to support the group’s conservation work as it helps create a stronger future for hunting, fishing, wildlife habitat and outdoor recreational opportunities both for its union members and the communities they support.”
The invaluable assistance of partners like Carhartt and other great brands supports the USA’s goal of uniting the millions of active and retired labor union members who hunt, fish, and recreate outdoors into one of the largest sportsmen-based conservation organizations in the country.
