Does "Union Made" apply to the beer or can?

On cans of beer, for example Iron City or Pabst Blue Ribbor, it says "Union Made." Does this refer to the can or the actual beer, or both?

I know Pabst beer makers used to be unionized, at least in Milwaukee, but then they closed the plant here.

The beer. The can may be union-made as well, I don't know but the slogan refers to the beer.

Best answer: It has to be the beer. The only product I know of where a union gets to put its label the package is cardboard boxes, and that's because the package is the product.

Pabst beer is now "contracted brewed" by Miller breweries in Milwaukee. (Miller actually does this for several brands of beers) The brewery workers at Miller are unionized.
