President Tony Helfer in action.


Message from the President:

Welcome to the website of UFCW Local 23! We hope that the information provided here is helpful to our membership and to all who seek more information about organized labor.

For all who work, we believe that your labor should be rewarded with wages and benefits that will support you and those who depend upon you.

To accomplish that goal, we must exercise that power that we each possess by combining it as a union. When we work together as a union of people with the common goal to provide for ourselves and our families, we are a mighty force. When we are active and fully participate, we become even more powerful.

I encourage all members of Local 23 to be active in your union. Attend meetings and participate in events. Educate yourself about how politics affect your work life and engage accordingly. You have the ability to shape your future. By working together we can improve your income, provide affordable health care, build a solid retirement and protect you on the job.

Let us exercise our power for the common good of working people.

President Tony Helfer
