Eric Jimenez began his prestigious career in the grocery industry in 1987 and has been a UFCW Local 1500 member for the last 20 years. Eric is currently the Produce Manager and Shop Steward of Stop & Shop Arverne. He earned the leader position and trust of his team by being active for his fellow team members when, management violated members respect and rights.
Eric has positioned himself as a mentor for the newer and younger members who may not be familiar with their rights, and as a bridge to build better communication between members and management. Eric has been a tremendous supporter of the union and we thank him for his diligence and leadership.
