UFCW 21 - A Voice for Working America


Having a union makes a difference. Union members are far more likely to receive health care benefits from their jobs.

UFCW 21 members at different workplaces have different benefit plans. The health plan you have depends on your contract.

UFCW 21 members at Safeway, Albertsons, Fred Meyer, QFC, Bartell, Rite Aid, and many other stores receive benefits through the Sound Health & Wellness Trust. Representatives of both UFCW 21 and representatives of employers are jointly responsible for Sound Health & Wellness.

UFCW 21 members at several health care facilities are also covered by Sound Health & Wellness.

Many health care workers, as well as some other retail and industry workers, are covered by their employer-based plans. Again, these are bargained as part of your contract.

For more information on the Sound Health and Wellness plan, visit soundhealthwellness.com.

For all information and questions related to a different benefit plan (such as an employer-adminstered plan), please contact your employer.

If you believe your employer is not providing the benefits in your contract, contact your Union Representative.
