We Do The Work

From the pork to the fork, UFCW Local 663 meat packing and processing members do the hard work.

More than 70 percent of the beef and 60 percent of the pork consumed in the United States is processed in meat packing plants by UFCW members.

Most Dangerous and Difficult Jobs in the U.S.

Jobs inside meatpacking plants are some of the most dangerous and difficult in America, 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.

Protecting Our Bodies and Our Rights

For UFCW Local 663 members at JBS in Worthington, MN, and other meat packing workers, membership in UFCW means:

  • Guaranteed annual wage increases
  • The right to Union representation and a grievance procedure if your rights are violated
  • Improved worker health and safety
  • Free Union immigration and citizenship programs
  • The power in numbers to influence national standards on line speed and other workplace legislation as a Union
