“The year’s election will be transformational for the lives of working people – from wages, jobs, healthcare, and our right to be safe at work,” said Andrea Zinder, president, UFCW Western States Council and UFCW Local 324. “UFCW members know just how much workers’ lives depend on decisions made from choices bubbled in on the ballot. That’s why UFCW members will be working tirelessly to get out the vote for candidates who are committed to hard-working Californians and their families and make sure our voices are heard at the ballot box.”
