    Whatzit mean?

    Howdy all! I've been sorting through my pinback buttons lately and happened
    upon this one.

    It's from a Sheet Metal Workers Local in Illinois. It was made by the Green
    Duck Company in Chicago, don't know when. Perhaps the slogan could help
    date it.

    Thanks for looking!

    That logo on the back is from the SMART Union (Int'l Assoc. of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail, & Transportation Workers). I'm guessing they just made the button and it has no meaning to the front. Don't know what the front means (yet). Here's a very similar logo of theirs:
