Fighting to improve health care.
Nothing is scarier than getting sick and not knowing what to do. Can you afford to see a doctor, pay the bills or get the care you need to get better? We work every day to make sure our members have access to affordable health care through their work.
“My UFCW gives us the best healthcare I could ask for. It’s really good and affordable. When one of us gets sick or injured, our bills get covered. So many people who don’t have a union don’t have health insurance. Not us. The UFCW puts our needs first.”– Hidi Colquitt, UFCW Local 1996
Staying healthy is critical to the better life you have earned and deserve. 94% of union workers are covered by workplace healthcare and that includes UFCW members. Our contracts include access to high-quality, affordable health care for you and your family that includes everything from regular preventative services to care in a crisis that you don’t control.
However, medical bills remain the number one cause of bankruptcy for American workers.
That’s why we push to improve our benefits and to raise the floor for access to health care for all Americans. We demand that all employers in our industry provide access to good health care, even if they aren’t unionized and we fight to make legislative changes that improve access to health care for every worker in America.
