United Latinos of UFCW
A Fund to Support Members Who Become American Citizens
The New American Citizenship Fund is made possible by UFCW local union support to the United Latinos of the UFCW. The Award is for UFCW members who have recently become U.S. citizens and who have demonstrated a strong commitment to building a stronger voice for workers in their Union and in their community through active engagement in advancing social and economic justice.
The United Latinos of the UFCW has created a special fund that will distribute awards in the amount of $600.00 per member. The New American Citizenship Fund is open to all UFCW members and will renew every year pending a vote from the United Latinos Board. Learn more at: ufcw876.org.

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.
