Your Rights

Union members have specific rights on the job that are spelled out your contract. You also have rights that are protections in state and federal law.  Each Union contract is different.  If you would like to find your contract, click here. Check out the information in this "Know Your Rights" section of the website to find out more.

All union members have certain rights at work that help protect them from unfair treatment. Many of these rights are guaranteed in laws such as Family Medical Leave, overtime, safe working conditions. Many other rights are ones that are secured through a contract that union members have negotiated at a specific workplace.

Below is a listing of rights for UFCW 1500 members. These are general rights and apply to most all situations. Beyond the listed categories, members should check with a steward or Union Rep if they feel their rights are being violated. Only by standing for our rights can we achieve fair treatment at work.
