(Sept. 16, 2019) — For months, bargaining teams representing some 30,000 grocery workers in 12 counties around the Puget Sound area have been working to get a fair contract agreement. These workers — who are our family, friends and neighbors — are seeking wage increases, affordable health care, secure pensions, and investment in training.

And this week their three unions — UFCW 21, Teamsters 38 and UFCW 367 — will be holding shared actions to engage with the community in a different way than they have so far in this important campaign.

Grocery workers will be out from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 18 at the following freeway overpasses in King, Pierce and Snohomish counties with banners promoting their message: One Good Job Should Be Enough. All union members and community supporters are invited to join them at these actions to wave at passersby and make some noise. Please RSVP which location you can support to either Kristin Beifus or Cariño Barragan.
