      The nominations for Officers and Vice Presidents of UFCW Local 1776 were held on Friday, July 1, 2016. At the nomination meetings, Wendell W. Young, IV was nominated and re-elected as President of UFCW Local 1776.
      Today in Harrisburg, we beat back efforts to further privatize the PLCB. The House Rules Committee amended and adopted House Bill 1196 with all of the harmful elements taken out. At the beginning of the week, privateers thought they had the votes to pass a bill which would have accelerated privatization.
      The PA State House is attempting to pass MORE liquor privatization this week. There are TWO things you can do right now to stop it.
      June's honoree is Brian Baldwin. Brian has been a UFCW member for more than 30 years. He is a caring father and loving husband who works hard on the overnight shift so ACME customers have the products they need throughout the day. Thank you, Brian for your dedication to your job, community, and your Union.
      UFCW Local 1776 stands with The Philadelphia Federation of Teachers (PFT) as they negotiate a contract which guarantees Philly’s Schoolchildren smaller class sizes, full-time nurses, counselors, working water fountains, adequate classroom supplies and other crucial programs and services. The PFT does not have a contract because our School District and the SRC want to remove resources from any new agreement, and they want to take more money from the teachers and school staff!
      The UFCW PA Wine and Spirits Council is strongly opposed to the reckless privatization proposal signed into law. This bill will eventually dismantle the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB), which last year provided generated $584 million in state revenue, and hasten the demise of Wine and Spirits Stores.
      Nearly 450 Mission Foods workers join 20,000 United Food and Commercial Workers Union Local 1776 members, voting YES for Union Representation on the job. “This is one of the greatest moments of my life knowing that we are not going to fend for ourselves anymore but have Representation,” said Nadia Vlavonou, Mission Foods employee.

      Special thanks to all our Stewards who attended our Local-wide Stewards Conference. On Thursday, April 28 and Friday, April 29, 2016 we hosted a Local-wide Stewards conference at the Hershey Lodge in Hershey, Pennsylvania.  We were pleased nearly 250 of our Local Stewards participated in the conference.
      Privatization means the loss of valuable revenue and nearly 5,000 family-sustaining jobs. The PLCB generated a record $2.23 billion in sales in the last fiscal year, an increase of 4.2 percent over the previous year. The PLCB transferred more than $581 million in profits, taxes and other payments to its shareholders – the taxpayers of Pennsylvania. In the last five years, the PLCB has sent $2.6 billion in cash to the general fund.
      WMGK and the United Food and Commercial Workers Local 1776 have partnered together to highlight a Local 1776 member every month who has gone above and beyond serving customers and their communities. Just in time for Mother's Day, we're honoring Catherine Kelly -- mother of recently deceased Acme member Ryan Kelly.
