The logo for the United Food And Commercial Union has a Masonic handshake on it. The logo also depicts a North American Union integration of United States, Mexico and Canada. Pictured Above.
The United Food and Commercial Workers International Union is a labor union representing approximately 1.4 million workers in the United States and Canada in many industries, including agriculture, health care, meatpacking, poultry and food processing, manufacturing, textile and chemical trades, and retail food. Until July 2005, UFCW was affiliated with the AFL-CIO, where it was the second largest union by membership. Along with two other members of the Change to Win Coalition, the UFCW formally disaffiliated with the AFL-CIO on July 29, 2005. Source: Wikipedia
The UFCW currently operates in a number of major grocery chains throughout the United States, including Albertsons, Kroger, Meijer, Schnucks, Safeway, Giant Food LLC, The Stop & Shop Supermarket Company, P&C Foods, Quality Markets, BiLo (both Ahold and Penn Traffic's), Tops Markets, A&P, and Shop Rite. The Union also operates in Canada in major food retail chains such as Loblaw Companies Limited. Source: Wikipedia
