      July 30, 2015: Message from President Wendell Young to Local 1776 A&P members: Thank you to the more than 400 A&P members who participated in our teleconference event on Thursday, July 30.

      The UFCW PA Wine and Spirits Council and the 3,500 Pennsylvanians who work in Pennsylvania’s Wine and Spirits stores applaud Governor Tom Wolf’s veto of the reckless legislation to dismantle the PLCB. “Governor Wolf made the responsible decision.

Governor Wolf made a statement that directly affects the 3,500+ UFCW members who work in PA's Wine and Spirits Stores -- he called for the modernization (NOT privatization) of the PLCB to improve customer convenience and raise revenues for our State.

      The Supreme Court has struck down the ban on same-sex marriage, bringing marriage equality to all 50 states.  We are proud to play a role toward equality, and this ruling is a significant victory for all American families.   Read the following statement from UFCW International President Marc Perrone following the decision:  WASHINGTON, D.C.
