Daniel Ross, Jr.


UFCW Local 152 President Daniel Ross, Jr., began his career in the labor movement as an Organizer in 2000. In his first decade with the UFCW, he focused on helping workers primarily at nursing homes and manufacturing facilities organize their workplaces. Danny took advantage of opportunities to travel around the country assisting our International Union on various assignments where he forged bonds with workers and other labor leaders from many different backgrounds.

Throughout his career, Danny has connected with workers in many different industries and fortified their trust in the UFCW.

Armed with the knowledge and experience from years of servicing members, he took the lead in bargaining many successful contracts and worked his way through the ranks; being promoted to Assistant Bargaining Director, then Bargaining Director and Executive Assistant to the President. Danny was also elected to serve on the Executive Board.

Additionally, Danny spent many years on the board of the Bryan D. Ross Foundation, a charitable organization established in honor of his brother, who died of lung cancer at the young age of 32. The Foundation exists to help defray the cost of a catastrophic illness, injury, or death of Local 152 members, their families, or the community.

In May 2024, by unanimous support of the Executive Board, Daniel Ross Jr. was sworn in as President of UFCW Local 152, following the retirement of Brian String.

“Unions exist to improve the lives of working people, period. Local 152 offers our members a vehicle to advocate for themselves and a committed staff that is dedicated to supporting working families to the very best of our ability,” he said.

Danny lives in Burlington County, NJ, with Elizabeth, his long-term wife, and daughters.
