Improving on-the-job safety and negotiating contracts that provide members in the chemical industry with better wages and benefits are top priorities for the International Chemical Workers Union Council (ICWUC).
Nationally recognized for its contributions to chemical worker safety, the council’s Center for Workers’ Health and Safety Education is located in Cincinnati, Ohio, and trains 25-30 local union members each week. The council also operates a Health and Safety Department from its headquarters that provides job site training programs. One of the most important avenues for improving job safety is legislation at both the state and national level. The council regularly lobbies for laws and regulations that ensure chemical workers have a safe workplace.
In addition to incredible safety programs, UFCW chemical workers earn the best wages in the industry and enjoy important benefits like retirement and job security. We’re proud that our negotiated contracts make life better for hard-working men and women all across the chemical industry.
