A UFCW Member, a Refugee, an American Story

Only about 10.5% of Americans claim Irish ancestry, but that doesn’t stop the rest of us from celebrating the proud history of the immigrants who came before us.

Though our national love of St.Patrick’s Day and all things Irish might be hard for outsiders to understand, the day has really become a chance to celebrate the optimism and bravery of those who left their home countries on the gamble that they could have a better life here in the US. Their stories of hardship, hard work, and hope for the future continue to be a source of pride and inspiration and have enriched the fabric of the country.

AFL-CIO Analysis of President Donald Trump’s FY 2018 Budget

Working people in states like Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin didn’t vote for a budget that slashes workforce training and fails to invest in our nation’s infrastructure. President Trump’s proposed budget attempts to balance the budget on the backs of working families.

"Stamp Out Hunger" Food Drive

UFCW Local 1459 is participating in the National Association of Letter Carriers "Stamp Out Hunger" food drive which will be happening on Saturday May 13, 2017.

I am reaching out to all of the Stewards to help in the collection of Non-perishable foods. Anything you can donate and or collect will go a long way in showing how much we care about helping to improve our communities.

Last year more than 80 million pounds of food was collected and made "Stamp Out Hunger" the largest single day food drive in world history.

Local 1459 is proud to take part in this year’s drive and needs all of your help to make this year more successful than last year.
You can bring a non-perishable food item to the Steward Seminar or collections can be dropped off at Local 1459's office until Thursday, May 11th, 2017, 8:30 am to 5:00 pm or call Dean Ethier at (781) 603-7843 and he will be happy to pick up donations.
