To the members of UFCW Local 1776 Keystone State,
Welcome to UFCW Local 1776 Keystone State! As of May 1st, your union now represents over 33,000 hardworking members from Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Eastern Ohio, and New York. Local 1776 KS represents workers in grocery, retail, packing & processing, chemical workers, health care, medical cannabis, public sectors, and more. We represent hundreds of employers across the Commonwealth of PA, including Acme, the PA Wine & Spirits Stores, Giant Eagle, Kroger, Cargill, The Hershey Company, Mission Foods, Riverbend Foods, Smithfield, Empire Kosher, Sysco Foods, and more. With strength in numbers, we now have a louder voice at the bargaining table and in the workplace. Our statewide footprint will put us in a better bargaining position and we are ramping up organizing campaigns across the state, allowing us to represent new members who deserve better wages, better benefits, and voices in their workplaces. Our combined team is fighting every day for strong contracts that ensure better pay and benefits for every single member, and we are sure to be delivering even more victories in the coming months! Local 1776 and Local 23 have a long history of working together on many issues over the years, and we are excited to begin this new chapter as UFCW Local 1776 KS. We would like to thank the dedicated members of Local 23 and 1776 for supporting this merger, and we look forward to representing over 33,000 members as Local 1776 KS.
Be on the lookout over the next few weeks as we introduce UFCW Local 1776 Keystone State, and if you have any questions, please contact your union representative.
