COVID-19 continues to present our union with many operational challenges. We continue to utilize new and exciting ways to reach our membership and ensure you continue to be plugged in.
UFCW 401 has always been a strong voice for members. More now than ever, we continue to fight for issues that affect you in these unique times. We have taken on those issues with your employers and highlighted them to the public. We remain committed to taking bold and decisive action and provide voice and support for frontline workers across the country. UFCW Local 401 members have been visible and are being heard!
Being a member of a union also means participating and being active in it. There are many ways to do that, and one is through attending General Membership Meetings.
Large physical gatherings remain a risk but our internal governance processes must continue to function.
Our UFCW Local 401 leadership is committed to finding new ways of doing things during the pandemic – this includes holding General Membership Meetings in new formats that will allow for physical distancing but also broad and accessible participation for members across Local 401.
The details of that meeting are as follows:
Location: Just before the call, all UFCW Local 401 members with updated contact information should receive a phone call inviting them to join the call. UFCW Local 401 members can also participate online by using the following link: https://bit.ly/UFCWTTH
The interactive Telephone Town Hall meeting will be hosted by UFCW Local 401 President, Thomas Hesse, and Secretary-Treasurer, Richelle Stewart. It will cover topics such as current union contract negotiations, COVID-19 matters, an overview of union business, reports, and union finances. UFCW Local 401 members will be invited to ask questions and participate in survey polls during the call.
We’ll send out a reminder closer to the time, and we hope you can tune in!
