In monumental victory, Smithfield workers unionize

December 16, 2008

UFCW President Joe Hansen told UNITE HERE “We couldn’t have done this without the help of UNITE HERE, SEIU and the United Farm Workers. The organizers you loaned us were terrific, and the community support was critical. This is a victory for UFCW, Change to Win, and the entire labor movement. Please pass my heartfelt thanks along to the men and women of your great union.”
