Issues and Advocacy

In addition to standing up for fair treatment in the workplace, members of UFCW Local 700 are committed to fighting for social and economic justice in our communities and across the country.

To that end, we are committed to supporting Walmart workers as they fight to win a living wage from the world’s most powerful company; electing and supporting public officials who support working families; building an economy that works for everyone; and fighting for immigration reform that strengthens our country and respects the dignity of all people.
