This is not just another factory, and this is not just another job. This is an iconic business with a strong labor union representing its employees. Our Union and Hickey Freeman have 100+ years of history and is the finest example of a true labor-management partnership. This support will help to ensure the job security of 400 union members and adding more in the near future. Hickey Freeman workers have committed their lives to this factory and take tremendous pride in their craft and making the best men’s suits in the country.
