We want to extend a warm welcome to Metro Market workers in Milwaukee who recently joined UFCW Local 1473.
One of the main motivating factors for the men and women of Metro Market to join the UFCW was a desire to strengthen wages, improve scheduling and staffing, and have a way to address other issues they face on the job.
“I am looking forward to the positive change a union contract will bring to our store,” said Josephine D’Amato, a bakery clerk who has worked at the Metro Market Van Buren store for 13 years.
“The biggest thing a union does is give us unity in numbers,” said Terrence Honey, a produce clerk who has worked at the Metro Market Van Buren store for 16 years. “Strength in numbers helps level the playing field.”
Congratulations and good luck with your first contract!
