From St. Paul Union Advocate, 7/7/17:  He is gruff and often combative, principled and usually blunt. But above all else, Bernie Hesse is a trade unionist.

From his days as a grocery clerk to his current work as director of special projects for United Food and Commercial Workers Local 1189, Hesse has made himself ubiquitous in St. Paul’s labor community. If you’ve walked a picket line or joined a get-out-the-vote effort sometime in the last two decades, chances are you’ve crossed his path.

As a member of our Union family, it is important that you are aware of how the President's budget cuts could impact people you care about.

Social Security cut by $72 billion:  People who can no longer work due to serious injury or illness rely on Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) to survive.  This cut will jeopardize the ability of millions of families to eat and pay rent.

UFCW Local 1189 will be at the Minnesota State Fair every day, Thursday, August 24  through Labor Day, Monday, September 4, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m.  Members interested in helping staff our kiosk will be given a free state fair entry ticket and a t-shirt, but must work a minimum of 4 hours.  Please contact Union Representative Mike Dreyer.

This year’s 15 trap shoot participants included 10 Local 1189 active members, 1 Local 1189 retiree from Rainbow Foods, 1 UFCW  Local 653 member, 1 father of a Local 1189 member and 2 sons of Local 1189 members.  The trap shoot was held at the Metro Gun Club in Blaine, MN.
