      UFCW Local 1776 Wise members: The Local along with the UFCW Local 1776 and Participating Employers Health and Welfare Fund will be hosting two tele-town hall calls on Tuesday, February 9, 2016 at 11 AM and 5 PM.  These calls will serve to address and answer any questions you have about your health and welfare benefits in an organized fashion.
      For the past several years, union members have been fighting hard against anti-union legislation that seeks to silence public workers in Pennsylvania. The so-called ‘Paycheck Protection’ bill follows the same strategy that Governor Walker used against teachers, nurses, and first responders in Wisconsin, and which ultimately led to Wisconsin becoming a Right to Work state.
      (Plymouth Meeting, January 22, 2016) Wendell Young, IV, President of UFCW Local 1776 is pleased to announce that the UFCW 1776 Executive Board unanimously voted to endorse Rep. Dwight Evans for Congress in Congressional District 2. “Dwight has been an advocate for the members of our Local during his time in Harrisburg,” stated Young.
      On December 22, JBS held a multicultural celebration, where Stewards and members enjoyed food and celebrated the diversity within their workplace. Local 1776 distributed information about our Citizenship Workshop where members learn how to apply for U.S. Citizenship and help family and friends do the same.
      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. This month's winner is Rob Peters, a long-time, knowledgeable and active member with PA's Wine and Spirits Stores.
      Thanks to the Rite Aid members who participated in our tele-conference call on Tuesday, January 12. We hope you found the format useful and effective in answering your questions. If you missed any part of the call you can listen to the full recording by logging in to our website. Please contact your Union Representative with any questions.
      The Senate passed wine privatization with a vote of 29 to 21 on December 10. The legislation (House Bill 1690) is now being sent to the House of Representatives for approval. The burden is on us to stop the bill from passing in the House and being sent to the Governor's desk. URGE your Representative to vote NO on House Bill 1690.
      Get on board with Governor Wolf's budget proposal and be a part of moving Pennsylvania forward. Together we can rebuild the middle class, fund our children's future and put an end to this budget impasse. Click to learn more.
