Welcome to 876 Family!
Congratulations to the Lume workers in Monroe, Michigan who voted to join Local 876 today! These workers stood together because they know that having a union contract is the way to create a sustainable future as a cannabis worker.
"Unions built Southeast Michigan and we're honored to be the newest part of the rebuilding effort. A unionized Lume means better working conditions for employees, better relationships between the store and corporate management, and an improved experience for cannabis enthusiasts." -Michael, Luminary, Monroe
"Unions got us the weekend over a century ago. It's time for the next generation to continue to improve upon their legacy" -Kyle, Luminary, Monroe

25-Year Member Celebrations
Two nights to remember...
The 25-Year Member Celebration season has come to a close for 2022. We had two absolutely ROCKIN' events at Soaring Eagle and Motorcity! We can't wait to do it again next year.
Steward Conferences 2022!
Over the past month we have held three steward conferences with AMAZING turnout. #PresidentPedersen put together a wonderful line up of incredibly skilled an experienced presenters to share their wealth of knowledge with the stewards, so the union as whole can better serve all of you! Katy Macik from the Heartland Health and Welfare Fund and Aaron Cary from Freedom Financial House shared all things concerning healthcare and pensions. While three commissioners from the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service gave us insight into the grievance process from start to finish. Overall, it was an awesome time had by all involved filled with super cool raffles and lots of informative fun. All the events gave way to plenty of time for the stewards to catch up with Dan! We can’t wait until next year!

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.
