The Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union, UFCW, represents workers throughout much of the United States. RWDSU members work in a wide variety of occupations that range from food processing to retail to manufacturing to service and health care.
Poultry workers in the south, supermarket workers in New York, retail workers in the northeast, candy, juice, cereal and dairy workers in the Mid West, soft drink bottlers in New England, and government employees in New Jersey are among the many workers who have a strong voice on the job through the RWDSU.
Diversity is one of the strengths of our union. Members of the RWDSU may work in many different industries. We may come from different countries and speak different languages. But what unites us is the belief that by standing together we can better advance our interests and protect our rights as working people.

Park Slope Food Coop: Coop Values are Union ValuesWe’re excited that staff are exploring unionizing. The right to have, build, and support a union is an essential human right. Many other food cooperatives in the U.S. are unionized and, at their core, cooperative values are union values. Unions are an organizational tool that can help maintain accountability and serve as a vehicle for workplace democracy and social justice. Unionized workplaces are safer, more fair and transparent workplaces where it is possible to preserve and improve working conditions over many years, regardless of changes in administration and management.3,310 of 4,000 SignaturesCreated by HanaKyle Moranz
