Washington, D.C. – Today, Marc Perrone, the International President of the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW), released the following statement in response to Secretary Hillary Clinton’s choice of Virginia Senator Tim Kaine as her running mate:
“Again and again, Senator Kaine has supported hard-working families and worked to make their lives better. When a plan to sell grocery stores in Virginia was announced earlier this year, threatening the livelihoods of hundreds of UFCW families, Senator Kaine stood with us as we successfully rallied the community to save local jobs. Senator Kaine will help Secretary Clinton to build a better America and fight for the issues that matter to our union family.”
The UFCW is the largest private sector union in the United States, representing 1.3 million professionals and their families in grocery stores, meatpacking, food processing, retail shops and other industries.
