About Us

We are United Food and Commercial Workers Local 663. We are a union of more than 13,200 hard-working retail, meat packing and processing, food preparation and manufacturing, healthcare, and other workers in Minnesota and Iowa. We strive to improve the lives of our members and of all working families by fighting for economic, political, and social justice in our workplaces and communities. Local 663 is part of the 1.3 million-member United Food and Commercial Workers International Union.

We Protect Your Rights

Companies are making workers' jobs and incomes less secure through downsizing, part-timing, contracting out, and sending jobs off-shore. As the nature of work changes, working people need the collective voice and bargaining power.

Join Together

Working families never got anything without uniting for it! Here's a small list of what the power of coming together in the workplace has achieved:

  • The 40-hour workweek
  • The 8-hour workday
  • Overtime
  • Sick leave
  • Paid vacation
  • Company-paid health insurance
  • Pensions
  • Safety and health protections
  • Grievance procedure for violation of worker rights
  • Fairness in promotions and assignments
  • Higher wages and fair treatment on the job
  • Right to respect from managers

When workers stick together, we make things better.

We deserve better, for ourselves and our families. Contact us to find out more.
