It's almost impossible to not poke the bear... but if you want more effort, I'll put it out here: The raised fist always was, and always has been, a symbol of and by Marxists. It is the Marxists that talk about empowering the people -- "workers rights" they call it. Fight against the "oppressors". And it should be no surprise that Marxists *love* labor unions. I could go so much deeper into this subject, but it will almost certainly flip this discussion on its head, and that's not what I want to do whether there's a forum rule or not. But to round this out simply by saying "oh, it has lots of uses" shows a great deal of ignorance of history. That web search means diddly-squat. And no, I'm not accusing everyone who supports a union of being a Marxist. I'm not accusing all unions of being Marxist-affiliated or by nature. I'm not even calling the members of AEGIS Marxists. I'm saying whoever advocated for that symbol in the AEGIS logo is either ignorant of what it represents (and sometimes that happens; that accounts for a portion of its usage), or is the real deal. I don't know which. I wouldn't be talking about this had they not picked a symbol predominantly associated with authoritarian regimes, violent revolutionary movements, and economic socialism. I'd really like to know why this symbol was chosen.
