ORGANIZING DEPARTMENT

At United Food and Commercial Workers Local 5, you are the union. We come together to talk with our coworkers; you nominate and elect your union board and leaders; you determine the working conditions and concerns that will be bargained in a contract; you will be part of a larger movement to improve the lives of working men and women in the workplace and in their communities. At UFCW Local 5, You are your neighborhood Union.

The more workers join together for the good of all, the more management listens to what they have to say.

Talk with an UFCW5 organizer about how and why workers decide to join together in a union.

Plan how to empower and involve a majority of your co-workers in a campaign to form a union where you work.

Legally organize your union and start negotiations with your employer for a contract agreement that spells out your pay, your benefits and gives workers a stronger voice to solve problems at work.

Forming a union means employees stick together as a group so we can speak with a more powerful voice. In order for workers to be heard, it’s often necessary for us to join together so companies take us seriously.

By uniting in a union, workers gain a seat at the table to negotiate with our employers on issues like pay rates, healthcare coverage, retirement benefits, and other matters related to our jobs. Together, we stand up to make sure workers share in the success we help create.
