UFCW brothers and sisters kick off "SHOP UNION" campaign

Our sisters and brothers in the United Food and Commercial Workers Local 367 in Pierce County have set up informational picketing and are doing area-wide mailings to remind neighborhoods – and union members – to shop at union grocery stores.

The UFCW Local 367 has been there for our issues – they were a major presence at the April 8 rally in Olympia. So it’s a no-brainer to support them and union grocery store jobs.

They kicked off the campaign at the grand opening of the non-union WinCo foods in south Tacoma with reminders of union alternatives in the area.

UFCW Local 367 says union stores to patronize in the same area are: Safeways at 1302 S. 38th St., 707 S. 56th St. and 1624 72nd E.; the Fred Meyer at 7250 Pacific Ave.; Saars at 6414 Yakima Ave.; and Albertsons at 111 38th St.
