Local 1102 Members Take Advantage of Union-Facilitated ESOL Classes

DSCN0874 DSCN0853UFCW/RWDSU  Local 1102 Food Service workers from Hofstra University and Flying Foods Group have dedicated many hours to improve their personal and professional capacities through union-facilitated English language classes.

“Not only am I more comfortable speaking with my customers here at the University, but also I now have more confidence when I go shopping at the food store, the mall or anywhere else!” said Sylvia Quinteros, a Local 1102 member.

Another Local 1102 member, Cecelia Alvarado also benefitted from the course: “I now get more support from my managers at my job–I am able to speak with them and better understand their instructions.”

Congratulations to all the graduates!
