     Virginia Delegate Lee Carter’s gubernatorial campaign staff recently made history by joining UFCW Local 400. This organizing win marks the first time that gubernatorial campaign staff has voted to join a union in Virginia. “These workers have joined the growing ranks of unionized political staffers around the country who are putting their values into action in the workplace.” - Mark Federici/ UFCW 400 President

    Stillwater, MN

    Members of UFCW Local 1189 who work at River Market Co-op in Stillwater, Minn., recently ratified a first union contract that raises wages and improves benefits. The 37 members, who are employed as cashiers, grocery and produce stockers in the deli, pricing and health and beauty care divisions, joined our union family last May because they were concerned about recent employee firings over minor issues, as well as increased work assignments with no wage increases, and favoritism.
