As we have all seen, Hurricane Harvey has swept through the gulf coast and devastated Houston and other coastal cities and towns. Among the millions impacted by this storm are over 15,000 hard-working UFCW members and their families. They are in urgent need of temporary shelter, clothes, fresh food, and other daily essentials.
We know these members and their families are struggling; but rest assured, they will not struggle alone.
UFCW Local Unions and the International have already launched a fundraising drive that will provide vital financial assistance to all members impacted by this disaster. We are working with community partners and employers to provide additional assistance. And, we have also heard from members just like you as to what they can do to help.

The 2017 Expose Walmart tour is a 22 state, 30+ city cross-country tour that will expose the many real stories of Walmart’s low wages, poor benefits, taxpayer-subsidized costs, and other negative community impacts. The tour kicks off in Phoenix, AZ on May 15th and ends at Walmart’s annual shareholder meeting in Fayetteville, AR on June 2nd. The tour will feature American workers, Walmart employees, community groups, elected officials, and leaders coming together to propose real solutions to the ‘Walmart-ization’ that is hurting our economy, costing taxpayers, and destroying our jobs.
