We’re excited to announce we have additional members to our UFCW family! Last month, twenty workers at the Peach Tree Acres assisted living facility in Harbeson, Delaware, voted unanimously to join UFCW Local 27. Peach Tree Acres is the only facility of its type in the state of Delaware and provides apartment-style assisted living and day care rehabilitative services for adults with brain injuries.
The men and women of Peach Tree Acres work hard to provide quality care and are passionate about their work. Wanting to make their workplace the best that it could possibly be, they reached out to UFCW Local 27 about joining and becoming union members because they were concerned about issue with wages, medical insurance, and a lack of respect from management in the workplace.
Excited to move forward
“It feels great to know that now that we voted for Local 27, someone will have our back at work!” said Kyna Hanzer.
“Let’s negotiate! I can’t wait to see all of the positive improvements that will be guaranteed with our union contract!” said Chrissy Hanzer.
“I am truly excited about upcoming negotiations with the company,” said Anthony Vogel. “I like the fact that, with a union contract, we will have job security.”
“Congratulations to the hard-working men and women of Peach Tree Acres! We look forward to negotiating the best contract that we can for the workers and their families,” said UFCW Local 27 President Jason Chorpenning.
