Together, we are one

UFCW Local 555’s members are our parents, our sisters, our children. We are all genders, all colors, all creeds. We are people; people who want to be treated with respect for the work we do in our communities. Our jobs are the glue that holds our communities together. We are UFCW Local 555.

We are each other’s greatest strength.

By simply banding together, we’ve exponentially expanded our power. And what we can do doesn’t stop there.
