My Union

We are Union Strong.

What it means to be
Union Strong

A union is the perfect example of the term “strength in numbers.” Together, we have more power to protect each other, to fight for better working conditions, to pressure our elected leaders to put working families above corporations, and to have better benefits because we are able to negotiate in large numbers.

Traditional Benefits

Please note, each contract is slightly different. Not all benefits will apply equally to different contracts, so be sure to familiarize yourself with yours. If you don’t have a copy, get one!

Health & Welfare [Medical] Options

You can’t beat union medical coverage. Learn more about what’s available to you.

Retirement Options

Remain informed about your retirement options. Unions are one of the last bastions of retirement protection in this country.

Supplemental Insurance

American Income Life offers supplemental AD&D coverage.

Union Plus Discounts

As a union member, you have access to the Union Plus discount program.

Collective Bargaining

UFCW Local 555 negotiates approximately 160 contracts in Oregon and SW Washington. That’s a lot. When your contract is up for renewal you can expect that a bargaining team will convene and that you will be informed of the goings-on and when/whether actions are needed.

Communication leads—members who volunteer to be workplace leaders and spread the latest details to their colleagues—will be able to tell you of the latest happenings and you can also follow along here, as the latest news from current negotiations and ratifications are listed.
