Mariah Abbott, part time cashier at the Maplewood Knowlan's store and a junior at Tartan high school, signed up for voluntary payroll contributions to the UFCW Actve Ballot Club (ABC) and was automatically entered into a drawing. The UFCW ABC is our own political action fund, funded with voluntary contributions from our members (not dues money). ABC funds are used to support candidates and legislative initiatives that work for UFCW members and their families. Mariah won $250 in the drawing, but we all win when we support the UFCW ABC fund. Sign up today to be entered in the next drawing!

The Commission will create an action plan laying out a comprehensive vision of Ramsey County’s future in terms of access to healthier foods and sustainable local food systems for food production, distribution and consumption.
ST. PAUL - Most meatpacking workers and some employers are unaware of a 2007 Minnesota law that spells out rights on the job, a legislative audit has found. The union representing some of these employees said the findings illustrate the need for stronger measures to protect worker safety and public health.
