California Pharmacy Workers ‘Go Union’ With UFCW Local 770 ‘For A Stronger Voice At Work’
(WOODLAND HILLS, CALIFORNIA) - Workers at Woodland Hills Compounding Pharmacy in Woodland Hills, California recently joined United Food & Commercials Workers (UFCW) Local 770 to strengthen their voice in the workplace.
This organizing victory is a result of one of the Workers reaching out through the UFCW International’s website, Union Officials said.
The 11 Workers, who are employed as Customer Service Representatives, Pharmacy Technicians and in the shipping, mail and marketing departments, joined the UFCW because they were concerned about treatment at work and wanted the better wages and benefits that come with a Union contract, Union Officials said.
Woodland Hills Compounding Pharmacy specializes in the formulation of drugs that are not commercially available and uses state-of-the-art technology to prepare customized medications.
“We are ‘finally going to have a stronger voice at work,’” said several of the new Members of UFCW Local 770.
“We’re proud to welcome Woodland Hills Compounding Pharmacy Workers to our Union Family,” UFCW Local 770 President John Grant said. “In ‘unity, there is strength’ - and ‘we look forward to negotiating a first contract that includes the wages and benefits these Workers have earned and deserve.’”
