On May 18, over 150 workers at the Giant Eagle store at Edgewood Towne Center in Pittsburgh joined UFCW Local 1776KS.
The workers joined our union family via card check after learning about the value of having a union voice in the workplace. This store was formerly non-union and privately owned. In the fall, corporate Giant Eagle took over, which created an organizing opportunity for UFCW Local 1776KS to increase their density with this location in the western Pennsylvania area.
“Throughout our jurisdiction, workers are coming together to demand livable wages, safe working environments and benefits that will support them and their families,” said UFCW Local 1776KS President Wendell Young IV. “We are proud to welcome these workers into our union family and are confident they will soon benefit from being UFCW Local 1776KS members.”
