At UFCW Local 135, we are well known for our outstanding tradition of excellence in representing the needs of working men and women. We represent members in diversified groups such as meat cutters, clerks in supermarkets, drug stores and other retail outlets, pharmacists and pharmacy technicians, personnel in health care facilities, casinos and processing plants.

You can be proud that you are an integral part of an organization that cares about people while working in an industry that proudly serves our community.

Unions are workers standing together to bargain with their bosses for better pay, safer working conditions and decent benefits. Historically, unions have accomplished many things for all working people that we now take for granted. Things like the eight-hour work day, minimum wage, child labor laws, unemployment insurance, Social Security and worker health and safety laws all were the direct result of union advocacy. Even Labor Day was created by unions.

Our officers and staff are dedicated to seeing that this union works for you. We urge you to join your fellow members in a continuing commitment to making our union united and strong.
