      Local 1776 is proud to sponsor WMGK 102.9's Turkey Drop for 2014!  The radio station's Turkey Drop is an annual event that collects thousands of turkeys for families in need the Tuesday before Thanksgiving.
      Good jobs make strong communities and improve our economy.  This holiday season instead of supporting companies like Walmart and Target who pay employees little more than minimum wage with little or no benefits, consider shopping where workers are paid better and receive good benefits.  When possible, buy products made in America.
      The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board's Fiscal Year 2013-14 Report is out -- and the numbers speak for themselves.  With a record $2.24 billion in revenue, Pennsylvania's Wine and Spirits Stores continue to benefit PA taxpayers. Click to read highlights and the full report.
      Thanks to our JBS Stewards who attended our Shop Stewards meeting at the Local's Walton Road campus. The Stewards received relevant training, shared valuable information with each other and had vibrant discussion about ways to improve their role in the plant.
      PLYMOUTH MEETING, PA (November 4, 2014) Wendell W. Young, IV, President of UFCW Local 1776, issued the following statement: “It is a great day to be a Pennsylvanian. The people have spoken and they know Tom Wolf is what Pennsylvania needs for a fresh start. A business man and supporter of the middle class, it is no wonder so many could relate to the vision Tom has for Pennsylvania."
      Local 1776 members and Representatives were at the Philadelphia Light the Night Walk on November 9th. Thanks to our members' efforts and the Local 1776 Rerum Novarum Charitable Trust, our team was featured as a Titanium sponsor of the event! All donations raised help fund treatments that save lives.
      The Italian Government plans on making a reform to the law on workers’ rights – one that will have dramatic consequences for workers. The reform would cancel the clause of the Workers’ Statute, which imposes the reintegration in the work place for a worker, in the case he or she has been victim of an unfair firing.
      Watch Local 1776 President Wendell Young, IV debate the issue of raising the minimum wage on WFMZ's Business Matters.  Discussing the issue with President Young was Thomas Sestak, Amy Dech, Katrina Anderson of the PA Commonwealth Foundation, Joe Ruffino owner of Biaggio Pizzeria & Family and Restaurant, Tyler Rogers of Safe Harbor Easton.
      On October 8, the School Reform Commission (SRC) made the disgraceful decision to cancel their union contract with the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers (PFT). Imposing terms unilat­erally is an attack not only on more than 12,000 dedicated teachers, counsellors, school nurs­es, support personnel and the children they teach and care for — it also was a direct attack on collective bargaining.
