    I have been working at UFCW International full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent wages and benefits.

    Cons

    However those wages and benefits have been eroded in the last few years. A couple of years ago we took a wage freeze and the relationship between bargaining units and management has become more adversarial.

    I have been working at UFCW International full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The pay is generous and the members that the UFCW represent are top notch. The members really understand their industries, employers, and why we should fight.

    Cons

    The president of this union suffers from classic narcissism. He is vindictive, petty, and small minded. The organization has lost any fighting spirit for its' members. There have been a massive number of high level staff leave since he took office, because of the lack of vision and misuse of resources. The union is spending millions of dollars on consultants, television ads, and other wasteful uses of dues money while members' contracts suffer. The union refuses to fight for them or organize. There is a serious problem of nepotism, racism, sexism, etc- all of it playing out with tokenism. No women or people of color have any authority, even when their job title suggests otherwise.

    Advice to Management

    Look hard at who you have become and speak truth to power whenever any opportunity presents itself.

    Pros

    Good place to work, rewarding work. Can always be better

    Cons

    Lots of travel, untrained managers, at times quick to judgment but for the most part management are understanding. There's just a few who don't understand what it means to manage.

    Advice to Management

    Try new things. Not the 1920's

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are good.

    Just because the mission is to promote social justice for its members, does not mean that is what they believe for their staff. Be aware.
