On Wednesday August 15th, 2000 union members staged a rally at Penns Landing in Philadelphia. The rally was to protest Trump’s immigration policies and more particularly the separation of children from their parents. UFCW 1360 was proudly in attendance to show their support!
The primary purpose of the UFCW Women’s Network is to unify UFCW women through an International network. Women, who comprise more that 50 percent of the UFCW’s members, represent a powerful resource for the union. The Network believes that active participation of women members in the UFCW will enhance our union’s strength at the bargaining table, in organizing campaigns, and in the political arena.

Be sure to check out “Eagles Super Bowl Champions” a song written by our own UFCW Local 1360 member Darryl Rivers from Ravitz Shop Rite. This was Darryl’s first song with many more in the works. Written on January 23, just 12 days before the Eagles won their first Super Bowl Championship. You may have heard the song played in Ravitz Shoprite and PriceRite leading up to the Super Bowl. Darryl had full confidence in the Eagles and wanted to create a song that would not only commemorate the victory but also hype up the fans for many years!
