    Pros

    Most of the people working there really care about the cause

    Work you to death. Fight with their own staff union and abuse works. Pay female workers with more experience less than their male counterparts while championing equality

    Pros

    The work environment is positive and accepting. The goals of the union are strong progressive values which leads to pro worker results.

    Cons

    Ability for career growth is very preferential. Some departments stunt growth and make it difficult to develop new skills; creating a vicious cycle where you can never switch departments or jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Integrate the work of office staff with field staff; or show office staff how their work is contributing.

    Good benefits, good to work for if you care about worker rights.

    I have been working at UFCW International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are no pros for UFCW.

    Cons

    No site visits, no communication to the workers they supposedly represent, this union is in the back pocket of the company.

    Advice to Management

    If you are not going to conduct site visits, hold meetings with your members, or even send newsletters, you ought to have a mechanism in your website for employees to submit feedback or issue complaints/file grievances.
