Joe Chorpenning

We are United Food and Commercial Workers Union (UFCW) Local 700 – a proud union family that works to produce, distribute, and sell the food and supplies families need.

UFCW Local 700 is a union of nearly 14,000 people united to improve our industries and our communities. Members of Local 700 work in supermarkets, food processing and packing facilities, and distribution plants across Indiana.

We are community-based union dedicated to the economic and social well being of our members, the growth and advancement of the labor movement, and the promotion and practice of union and political democracy.

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to earn a better life. Standing together, we can make sure the American dream is there for today’s working families. We are committed to providing effective representation at work and strong contracts that provide both dignity and a good standard of living.

Together, we will meet the challenges ahead and build a strong future. We negotiate for the better wages, affordable benefits, and retirement security you’ve earned. Union contracts provide for fair treatment, opportunity, and job security.

We represent workers in their first jobs and workers who’ve spent their careers putting dinner on the table for members of our community. And we are creating a better future through programs like free college and fundraising for Leukemia research.

Be part of UFCW Local 700. We are building a better future every day.
