You Deserve To Be Safe At Work

Do you work at JBS or in a swine processing plant? If so, please fill out this form about swine slaughter safety.

You deserve to be safe at work. That's why United Food and Commercial Workers Local 663 stands up for American workers and consumers hurt by the USDA's dangerous removal of pork plant safety protections. It's a simple concept--we believe in safety before profits.

We joined together with the UFCW international and other locals in a lawsuit to stop the new USDA rule that completely eliminates pork line speeds. We're serious about your safety.

To prepare for NSIS conversion, please identify changes to the plant slaughter and processing lines which may be signs that your plant is preparing to convert and increase line speeds. It will be sent to union representatives and kept confidential. A union representative will follow up about your concerns in a timely and respectful manner.

Most Dangerous and Difficult Jobs in the U.S.

Jobs inside meatpacking plants are some of the most dangerous and difficult in the United States, and the risk to food workers and our food supply increase when the line speed increases. Together, we ensure each others' safety through our daily work, our union contract with the employer, and through advocating for safe Federal standards.
