What is the UFCW?

The UFCW (United Food and Commercial Workers) is a group of people just like you who stand together to protect their rights at work and improve their lives.

As a member of UFCW 8-Golden State, you are a vital part of a great organization whose only purpose is to look out for the best interests of you and those you care about.

Your Union makes sure you are treated fairly, makes sure your health care is there when you need it, and helps during personal or family crises. You’re part of a family that looks out for you and yours every day.

As a member, you have the highly experienced professionals of UFCW 8-Golden State who are trained to help all members, wherever you work.

Organizing the unorganized is one of your Union’s highest priorities. Non-Union workers deserve a contract to help protect their wages, benefits and working conditions.

Stewards also help co-workers understand their contracts and the many benefits and services provided through their Union membership. Thanks to the Stewards, our Union can respond quickly to violations of contracts, help with grievances and press for improvements in subsequent contracts.
