See What Our Members Have to Say

I thought I would send you a quick note to say that I just received my first pension check. Hopefully the first of many.

I know, as well as anyone, the pension struggles that this union, and many unions, have faced are numerous and ongoing.
We have battled valiantly to ensure a secure future for our members. Now I get to benefit from those battles. I am grateful.

While I am not certain what retirement will bring to me, I am excited, after 33 years, to start this next chapter of my life.

Best wishes to you and all the staff.

Dear Mr. Utecht and UFCW Local 663,
We wanted to thank you very much. Our daughter, Jaclyn Zirbes, who has worked at the Chaska Cub for 2 years, was so fortunate to have receive your letter this summer letting her know that she had won a $1000 educational grant from UFCW 653. She was so excited and appreciative to find this out as we were as her parents. This has realy helped her out with her college expenses this year as she is a Freshman at the U of MN Mankato. Anyway, I want to mail this to you now. Thanksgiving is a special tmie and we feel very blessed and thankful for all you have done. Kindest regards. p.s. Jaclyn is excited to get o work at Cub over her Christmas Break.

Thanks again for everything.

Thank yo uso much for the 4 State Fair tickets. We went on Friday, August 31, with out daughter, Joy, who is an art teacher. She had entered her K-2 students' artwork from Bonner School in Stewartville, which is south of Rochester. They had won ribbons. So cool to see all of their artwork. Of course, we also enjoyed corn dogs and mini donuts. Thanks again.
