UFCW Local 152 is proud to introduce an official New Member Orientation!

The New Member Orientation Packet.

**Please note that registration is CLOSED for the November 18th meeting.**

Available to all members hired September 2018 or after, New Member Orientation meetings will take place one hour before General Membership Meetings. This is a great opportunity for new members to learn about our union family! Learn about the union difference, including who we are, the benefits and perks you receive as a UFCW Local 152 member, and your employee rights as a union member. You’ll also get to meet Union Representatives, fellow members from different facilities, and ask questions.

The New Member Orientation includes a brief, 20-minute presentation. Each member will receive:

  • an orientation packet,
  • a copy of their contract,
  • and a chance to meet their Union Representative (when possible).

Members will also be compensated based on the terms of their collective bargaining agreement. Based on their CBA, members who work in the front-end of Acme Markets, Bottino’s*, Perlmart, and Village ShopRite will receive two hours pay by their employer. All other members will receive a $20 gift card to a union retailer from UFCW Local 152.

*Except the Washington Township, NJ store (#615), which has different terms. 

How can I attend?

The next New Member Orientation will take place on Monday, November 18th at 9:00am and 6:00pm. Plus, you can stick around for your first General Membership Meeting.
