Sign our petition: WE WANT OUR OFFICERS ELECTION AND OUR UNION BACK
We the members of United Food and Commercial Workers Union Local 135 are demanding our right to choose our leadership and therefore demanding the process of Union Officers Election in accordance to the UFCW Bylaws and Constitution Article XII.

Dear members,

We need to take back our union. Right now unions and the labor movement are under attack. Our members are going into contract negotiations and we need a strong union, the support of other unions and community members to win these fights.

Michael “Mickey” Kasparian has been allowed to abuse his power and misuse union funds for too long. Within the last year Mickey Kasparian settled four lawsuits against him: gender discrimination, wrongful termination, quid pro quo sexual harassment and gender violence. Union members were handed the bill, lawyer fees and settlements were paid using our union funds.

Since these lawsuits emerged we have lost the support of other unions and of community members. Mickey’s wrongful behavior resulted in his being removed from the Central Labor Council by the President of the AFL-CIO, at a time when we need labor’s allies united the most.

Now is the time to come together and solidify our support with our allies, such as labor, community organizations, academia and faith-based groups. We are stronger when we are all united!

Thank you for your support!
