Empowering Workers

The UFCW 876 Organizing team is committed to helping workers acquire the tools they need to gain a real voice at work. As organizers, we focus on training the worker in developing relationships and building power, so that they can unite with their coworkers to win in the workplace.

Fighting for Common Sense Solutions

Today, more than ever, workers are faced with harsh political agendas, company takeaways, and corporate greed that prevents workers from getting the basic compensation they need to get by. Our organizing team is working to push back against this anti-worker agenda by advocating for solutions to the issues that affect working people every day. Please visit our issues page to learn more about what we are fighting for.

Providing Resources to Working People

From preparing for your first interview to planning for retirement and everything in between, navigating the complex world of modern day American corporations is difficult. We support working people with a wide range of resources (online and in person) to help workers build a path towards a good job, career security, financial stability, and professional advancement.

Building Coalitions

We are stronger as a group than we are as individuals. Community-based organizations, unions, faith-based institutions, elected officials, and individual supporters work together with the 876 Organizing team to advocate for better employment opportunities and hold employers accountable for unjust treatment of workers. We are always looking to build our network of allies, so please contact us if you’re interested in standing with us to support working people in Michigan.

Strengthening Professional Networks

Having positive professional relationships with individuals in your industry is an important aspect of your job. We bring workers together from across Michigan and is help to bridge the gap between people who do the same job for different companies. We sponsor social events and hold regular meetings where people have an opportunity to share and learn from those who have similar work and experiences.
