What are the benefits of having UFCW representation?
Union representation provides a wide range of workplace advantages through a union contract, which is collectively bargained on behalf of the members working for an employer. Contracts typically call for guaranteed wages, set standards for working conditions, provide funding for benefits such as health insurance and retirement income, as well as procedures to ensure that all contract provisions can be enforced, and that unjust treatment, discipline, and firings can be challenged.
