"Pants-Makers Union of Greater New York, ACWA"
This banner is part of the exhibit We Love A Parade, Union Banners Then and Now, featuring four 19th century banners, and twenty seven banners from the garment industry in New York City in the twentieth century.
The American labor banner -- a significant symbol of labor solidarity and strength -- has been the communications method of choice for labor unions since its inception. The Pants Makers banner shown here comes from one of the oldest locals in the union.
