Here We Go, Fighting the Fight Together
On the morning of Thursday, March 12, 2015, President Matt Utecht went to the construction site of New Hope's Hy-Vee to visit with our fellow unionist who are on an informational picketing line. Construction and General Laborers' Union Local 563, International Union of Painters and Allied Trades District Council 82, International Association of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail, and Transportation Workers Local 10, United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers and Allied Workers Local Union No.96 were all out on the informational picket line. Local 653 was out supporting our fellow locals by meeting them on that informational line. If you happen to be in area please show your support with a generous honk of your horn and thumbs up. United we stand! (pictures below)

Welcome to UFCW Local 653
Just a note to thank all who put together the great fishing tourney and Hot Dog picnic. It was a blast for my family and we won a lot of neat stuff. The grandkids are very happy and looking forward to our trip to Ours Resort next June. Thanks for being such a great union.
