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. 

Standing Together by Signing Together at MultiCare 

Garry-Hawkins-Christian-Hamm

Our Union member bargaining team had another round of negotiations yesterday. The next step is collectively taking action next week by signing the letter to MultiCare's CEO and the community about all the different issues we are pushing for in the negotiations.

Learn more about how and when you can sign the letter here. 



2015 Legislative Priorities 

The 2015 legislative session begins on Monday, January 12 in Olympia and our lawmakers will once again face important decisions that affect our workplaces. In order to make progress on our priority issues this year, our elected leaders need to hear from us, hear our stories, and hear why these issues matter to us.

We believe in the promise of America. A promise that our children can lead better lives than ours. A promise that with hard work and standing up for our rights, we can make a decent living that includes a good wage, health care, and retirement.

As part of that belief, there are many opportunities for members to learn to advance their learning and skills. A key part of that can be in becoming a steward, getting involved as a leader in a bargaining committee or contract action team. Learn more and download the application.

When we work together to raise standards for Walmart workers, we help all workers in America. The message from each community this Black Friday was 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. Here in Washington State, working with all the other UFCW locals and over 50 community organizations, other unions, and many hundreds of local supporters, we collectively took action at all 64 Walmarts in our state.
