Our Members

UFCW Local 1994 negotiates your contract—your working conditions, benefits, and salary—with your employer. We conduct our negotiations based on input from your coworkers who are members of Local 1994. If you aren’t a member, you don’t have any say! When it comes time to vote on your agreement, only members have a say.

You Can’t Vote if You are Not a Member

Local 1994 negotiates collective bargaining agreements that cover your working life. If you want a strong contract, we need you and all of your coworkers to stand behind your bargaining team. Imagine how much better our negotiations could go if your employer knew everyone was united in their desire for a stronger, better contract.

You Can’t Handle Every Situation on Your Own

Everyone needs help once in a while. You may run into a situation you can’t handle, and your union brothers and sisters could be there for you. Your shop steward or field representative will fight for you if a supervisor has unfairly trageted your. You have rights in your workplace—the right to be treated with respect and dignity, the right to a workplace free from harassment, the right to do your job and to not fear for your job just because your manager doesn’t like you. Who won those rights? Your union. Your coworkers who joined together and created Local 1994 more than 30 years ago. Unless you want to say goodbye to those protections, we need every eligible employee to be a member of our union. Stand united! Together we are strong! 

There are Other Benefits to Being a Member

We have joined together with our international union to provide special discounts and offers to members only. Mortgage programs, theme park passes, movie tickets, reduced rates for AT&T Wireless, even car and truck savings. We have also negotiated an affordable college benefit program. Scholarship programs offered by Local 1994 partners and the International Union are only available to members.

The Active Ballot Club (ABC) is the political division of UFCW Local 1994. ABC gives you a voice on issues that directly affect you, your family, workplace safety, affordable health care, fair taxes, and your rights on the job.

Your ABC contribution is an investment in good government

Collective bargaining and political action: two sides of the same coin. Your union dues fuel our collective bargaining function, but we choose to use voluntary contributions from members like you to contribute to candidates who support working families. That’s why we come to you for contributions to our Active Ballot Club (ABC). Your contributions of from $2 to $10 a pay period (or more) help candidates who care about you, your job, your benefits and working conditions. How do we decide who deserves our support? Our Executive Board reviews all requests before we make contributions—checking a candidate’s record, performance and platform, and soliciting feedback from members like you.

Big Business outspends unions by 15 to 1

Business interests — like Wal-Mart. the Chamber of Commerce and the Business Roundtable — spend $15 in politics for every $1 spent by unions. We can’t hope to match them dollar for dollar. So, we’ve got to work smarter and harder in politics.

People over profits

We’ve got another advantage over big money and big business in politics. The other side is all about profits while we’ve got an agenda we can be proud of: education, public safety, public services, transportation and quality of life issues.

Get involved! Support the ABC

Your small contribution, combined with the contributions of other members can go a long way toward making our voices heard by elected officials. To sign up or for more information contact the UFCW Local 1994 office at 301-977-2447 or fill out the form below.
