Director of Organizing
Michael Thompson’s union membership began in July 1987 as part of the night crew in Perlmart ShopRite in Manahawkin, New Jersey. After 11 years on the night crew, Mike moved to a day produce position, where he worked for an additional 2 years until eventually becoming the HBA/NF manager. At this time, Mike became a more active union member and was ultimately elected Shop Steward at the store. He remained Shop Steward for ten years before joining the staff at Local 152 as a Special Projects Union Representative (S.P.U.R.) in March 2009. Since joining, Mike was been part of the organizing department before becoming a Union Representative. Today, he also serves as the local’s Communications Director and is on UFCW Local 152’s Executive Board, helping make fundamental decisions on behalf of the local.
