Welcome to UFCW Local 1189 River Market Community Co-Op Workers!

Workers at River Market Co-op in Stillwater, MN joined UFCW Local 1189 for a better life on May 20. River Market Co-op is the third co-op in Minnesota to join Local 1189. Whole Foods Co-op in Duluth, Wedge in Minneapolis, and the Co-op Partners Warehouse in St. Paul are all represented by UFCW 1189.


The workers joined our Union family because they wanted job security, a voice on the job, and the ability to speak up without retaliation. “The workers at the co-op did an outstanding job forming their Union, it was truly an effort driven and led by the workers. When workers take charge of their workplace like they did at River Market Co-op, they have the power to create a workplace that works for everyone. We are proud of their efforts and are excited to have them as members of UFCW Local 1189,” said UFCW 1189 President Jennifer Christensen.
