    Stronger TOGETHER! Local 1000 Union Rep Debra Donwerth is pictured rallying for our brothers and sisters in Houston as they negotiate for vital benefits in their next Kroger Contract.

    San Francisco

    Members of UFCW Local 5 who work at a cannabis dispensary in San Francisco, recently ratified an industry-leading contract that raises wages and improves benefits.

    Seattle-Tacoma, WA

    “We won! Through a pandemic, we worked together to secure a contract for a better tomorrow,” they said. The 182 technical workers are employed in jobs such as respiratory therapists, as well as emergency room, pharmacy, and lab technicians and other jobs to help care for patients.

    Washington, DC

    Workers at DC Holistic Wellness, a Black-owned cannabis dispensary in Washington, D.C., made history by becoming the first cannabis dispensary in the nation’s capital to unionize and ratify their first collective bargaining agreement.

    New Jersey

    About 20 maintenance workers at a ShopRite store in East Orange, N.J., ratified their first contract on Nov. 12. The workers joined UFCW Local 1262 because they wanted the same wages and benefits as their unionized colleagues who work in the front-end of the store and in the meat and deli section.
