Every year, members and the staff of UFCW Local 555 participate in Labor Day activities all across our jurisdiction. We all come together on this special day to celebrate the hard work you have done all year, and to remember the battles fought for the respect and dignity of hard working people in this country. We invite you and your family on September 5th to join your Union Brothers and Sisters at a Labor Day Picnic so we may celebrate together!
