Fairness for Foodworkers

Over 240,000 UFCW members work in the packing and food processing industry. We work the kill floors and processing sides of beef, pork, lamb, and chicken plants. We process meat in refrigerated plants making hams, bacon, and ground beef. UFCW members produce Oscar Mayer hot dogs, Campbell’s Soup, Tyson chicken fingers and even Crunch-n-Munch—everything from chicken and steaks to vegetables and snacks. We have hundreds of thousands of UFCW union brothers and sisters that work in supermarkets across the country—slicing our meat in their delis and stocking shelves with the cereal, soup, and frozen foods that we produce.
