Pharmaceutical Workers Elect Union Representation
Date:1/5/2012

MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich., Jan. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Yesterday, workers at VPH Pharmacy, a non-retail, pharmaceutical packaging facility near Swartz Creek, voted for representation with the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) Union in an effort to gain job security and a voice on the job. The vote ends the workers' nearly three-month union organizing campaign during which workers clearly demonstrated they stood unmoved and united in their fight.

"The workers at VPH function very much like a family, and when new management came in disrupting what was once a fluid environment, they became empowered to protect not only themselves, but each other," Krista Sturgis, UFCW 876 Organizing Director, said.

Unjust terminations, unpredictable work schedules and an overall unstable work environment forced workers to seek a way to gain back the protections and benefits they once had.

"The fear of being fired became a reality for everyone. It wasn't unusual for workers to see want ads for their jobs posted online," Sturgis said. "The work environment became chaotic.  Workers increasingly experienced unjust conditions including working up to several weeks without a day off."

Approximately 48,000 workers belong to the UFCW in Michigan, composed of Madison-Heights-based UFCW 876 and Grand Rapids-based UFCW 951. UFCW Michigan members work for a variety of retailers including Meijer, Kroger, and Rite Aid, along with numerous other companies in several industries including food processing, automotive supply, and health care.
