We are the Cargill Workers Union.
Thousands of Cargill employees across the United States have come together to make our meatpacking plants better with a union contract. UFCW, America’s food processing & meatpacking union, provides the resources and support to help us fight for safer plants with fairer working conditions and better benefits.

What We’re Fighting For
Union Cargill workers have the ability to negotiate together for higher base wages and guaranteed wage increases. Having a job at Cargill should mean making enough to provide for you and your family, no matter what facility you work at.
Your experience and expertise matter. That’s why ensuring that your seniority is recognized and respected is a top priority in negotiating our union contracts.
There’s no room for favoritism when you have a union. At our unionized Cargill plants, our contracts guarantee equal and fair treatment when it comes to pay, promotions, schedules, and more.
Higher Safety Standards
You should never have to work a job where you don’t have the proper training, safe working conditions, or PPE. With a union contract, you can make sure proper standards are put in place and Cargill is held accountable to those standards.
Protected Sick Leave
With a union contract, we can improve their sick leave policy and negotiate for more sick days with the company. More importantly, our contracts help us make sure that Cargill follows existing standards for sick leave policy.
