Congress is pushing legislation right now that would "Fast Track" the Trans-Pacific Partnership—a secretive agreement negotiated behind closed doors by government bureaucrats and more than 600 corporate lobbyists. It threatens everything you care about: democracy, jobs, the environment, and the Internet. UFCW Local 1189 joined a crowd off activists and concerned citizens in front of Senator Amy Klobuchar's office asking her to do the right thing. Call Amy, tell her to vote against fast track! 1-877-795-7862. Tell her to say YES to democracy! and No "Fast Track" for the TPP!
March 9, 2015 - Health care workers at United Pioneer Home in Luck, Wisconsin voted UNION YES! in an election conducted by the National Labor Relations Board. Workers showed their strong support for the Union, voting, 25 yes to 14 no to join the United Food and Commercial Workers Union Local 1189. Dignity, respect and a voice on the job were among the reasons the workers felt they needed a Union.
"I'm looking forward to having respect and dignity on the job." Sam Everson
Congratulations to the workers at Valley View in Houston MN for voting overwhelmingly in favor of their Union UFCW1189! 39(thirty nine) YES votes. 0(zero)NO votes. (three ballots were challenged and remained uncounted as they would not affect the outcome of the election). Workers stood together to make their workplace better for the workers and for their residents. Standing together, the members were able to defeat the anti-union campaign waged by their employer. The Union has filed multiple charges against the facility for violating the workers' rights.
We have all seen the commercials, the ones where Walmart compares itself to our local Union Grocery stores. The ads seem to imply that Walmart is saving us all so much money - but like so much we see today, the truth is really missing. UFCW1189's parady of the ad shows the true cost - not the false savings. Watch. Share. and Shop at Union Stores.
