What does your future look like?

Making sure that our members have the financial security they need to retire with dignity is a top priority for us. That is why we bargain to ensure and preserve strong retirement plans for our members. 

Our contracts have retirement plans you can count on in the future. We fight to keep these plans strong through stock market dips and legislative changes that can impact your savings. We also serve on retirement fund boards to make sure that the money you save isn’t being used against your interests.

“Securing the pension [in our contract] was a priority for me because it secures the future for everybody in this industry. It’s the light at the end of the tunnel.”

– Mike Insley, UFCW Local 663

Sometimes, when you’re just starting, it can be hard to see the importance of planning for your retirement. That is why we ensure that ALL our members have access to strong retirement plans. More than 90% of union workers have retirement savings and union employers chip in 56% more to retirement than non-union workplaces. 

After decades of hard work, you deserve the rest and relaxation that comes with a secure retirement.
