outreach

UFCW OUTreach is a constituency group dedicated to building mutual support between our union’s International, regions, and locals and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community and their allies in order to come together to organize for social and economic justice for all, regardless of age, race, gender, creed, color, sexual orientation, or gender identity. This year, UFCW 1189 OUTreach tabled at the Twin Cities Pride Festival for the first time. UFCW 1189 staff and members talked to festival goers about the benefits of being Union and buying Union.

At the 2013 International Convention, Local 1189 Union Representative Tamara Jones was elected to serve on the executive board of UFCW OUTReach, the newest constituency group for the UFCW focusing on GLBT workers.  Recently, UFCW OUTReach held its second executive board meeting and first annual lobby day in Washington, DC.
