UFCW 653 Doorknock

Aug 1st 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join fellow Local 653 members as we talk and listen to our union neighbors on working class issues at stake.

UFCW Local 653 is sponsoring two doorknocks to talk with our Northwest Suburban neighbors. Will you join us?

If you are interested, please call the Union's front desk at 763-525-1500 to sign up! It's easy and fun. We'll meet at the Union office by 4 for a brief training before heading out.

We are talking to union voters and their families about the freedom to join in a union and what that means to them in communities across our jurisdiction. These door-to-door conversations are shaping our priorities for the time when our election work will ramp-up after the primary.

So far, we are finding union members eager to talk to fellow union volunteers about their experience in the workplace. Amazing stories are being revealed about how much a union really means for families, from emotional healthcare stories to inspiring recollections of experiencing housing stability for the first time.

One of our main takeaways from the 2016 election is that our union members need to really be heard. To do this work, we will need all of you this summer.
