  • Active Ballot Club

    UFCW 876 members know worker-friendly legislation is derived from candidates who support, advocate and push for laws that create meaningful, worker protection policy in both our nation and state. Without these leaders and actions, workers are vulnerable to the interests and budgets of their employers. That is why UFCW 876 has the Active Ballot Club, or A.B.C.
