UFCW 21 - A Voice for Working America

To build a powerful Union that fights for economic, political and social justice in our workplaces and in our communities.

When we work together to raise standards for Walmart workers, we help all workers in America. The message from each community is a message of support for Walmart workers who work for the largest employer and the wealthiest family in the US, but who still struggle to make ends meet. The actions call on Walmart to provide workers with fair pay for hard work, full time hours, respect, and to end the retaliation against workers who speak out for an improved workplace. Find Walmart actions taking place across Washington State by using this interactive map.

We need to continue to build our strength to win a fair contract that respects our work. Read More...
