Members of United Food & Commercial Workers (UFCW) Local 400 overwhelmingly elected the entire Forward 400 Slate as delegates to the UFCW International Convention, to be held August 12 to 16, 2013, in Chicago.
Representing Local 400 members as part of the largest Local Union delegation to the Convention will be President Mark P. Federici and Secretary-Treasurer Lavoris “Mikki” Harris, along with following members who were elected by their sisters and brothers: Yolanda Anwar, Breanne Armbrust, Loyd Baker, Mike Boyle, Mark Collins, Heith Fenner, Tiffany Flowers, Sonny Garibay, Makeba Dukes Gibbs, James Hepner, Chris Hoffman, Mick Hutchinson, Neil Jacobs, Jeff Lewis, Chuck Miller, Tom Rogers, Al Vincent, Donna Waddell, Paul Waddy, Wendy Weiner, and Carol Wiszynski.
“Together, we’re going to build greater unity within the UFCW and further strengthen our bonds with other Local Unions representing our employers,” Federici said. “The more Solidarity we have among the UFCW’s 1.3 million members and the more we work as one, the more power we’ll have in bargaining and political action, and the more success we’ll have in organizing. I am confident that we will emerge from this Convention stronger than ever, as we strategize together to empower our members and rebuild the middle class.”
