I’ve been a UFCW 555 member since March 2017. I have to say I love the security I have with this union. I’m glad we have the mandatory pay raises that the company has to give us. The insurance is amazing and so much cheaper than any other place I’ve seen!! I had thought about going back to work in the dentistry profession but it was too expensive to cover myself, my husband, and kids. That has played a huge role in my decision to stay here with union benefits because I can afford the coverage!!
