The UFCW International’s Information Technology Department recently released a promotional video for the Sidekick app, which can help locals connect with current and potential members face-to-face and maintain accurate membership data more efficiently from any mobile device.
The sidekick app is part of the UFCW’s Local Union Membership Management (LUMM) system, which is a free membership tracking software and widely used throughout all regions. The new cloud-based Sidekick app offers many features needed to join and service our members, including use of multimedia, digital membership application, reporting, surveys, grievance, document and file repository, texting, email and others.
“We’ve been using the Sidekick app for about a year, and it’s been invaluable in terms of one-on-one face time with members,” said Sam Marvin, who is the director of communications and an organizer at UFCW Local 328. “In addition to maintaining membership information, this app has helped our local highlight the value of belonging to our union family with our members and showcase the UFCW Free College Benefit, contract wins and pension information. I encourage other locals to take advantage of this app.”
