Every five years, UFCW members across North America come together to discuss our union’s direction and priorities and elect its international leaders.
As a member of UFCW Local 401, you’ll have the chance to select twenty-six delegates and six alternates to represent you at the Convention.
Don’t miss out – get involved and exercise your democracy! Make sure your voice is heard – our delegation must reflect the diversity of our membership.
So you can evaluate your options, we are providing each candidate with the chance to have election materials posted on this page below.
