Zara Workers in New York Join Local One

October 13, 2022

On Sept. 27 and 29, workers at two Zara stores in Buffalo and Albany, N.Y., joined UFCW Local One for the better wages and benefits that come with a union contract.

The 60 workers, who are employed as store clerks, cashiers and stockers at the two stores, joined our union family because they want a voice in their workplace, guaranteed hours, set schedules and raises, and more control over workplace rules in the event of a new manager.

Zara management believes in maintaining a neutral stance worldwide when it comes to their employees’ desire to join a union, and allows employees the free choice of whether to unionize.

“We are delighted that a majority of Zara workers have signed authorization cards to start the bargaining process with their company,” said UFCW Local One President Frank DeRiso. “These hard-working employees deserve a fair contract that spells out their wages, benefits, and work rules.”

In addition to Local One, RWDSU/UFCW Local 1102 also represents Zara workers in New York. UFCW Local 919 represents Zara workers in Connecticut; UFCW Local 888 represents Zara workers in New Jersey; and Zara workers in Massachusetts are represented by UFCW Local 1445.
