Chip in $20 to support Sherrod Brown's Campaign

The United Food and Commercial Workers International Union Endorses Senator Sherrod Brown for Reelection

COLUMBUS, OH  – Today, the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW) endorsed Senator Sherrod Brown for reelection. UFCW shares Sherrod’s mission to make sure hard work pays off and that every worker can retire with the dignity they’ve earned. Sherrod’s Butch Lewis Act saved the retirements of over 20,000 UFCW members.

“I am honored to have UFCW by my side in our fight to ensure workers receive the wages and benefits they deserve,” said Senator Sherrod Brown. “UFCW workers support Ohio families on the frontlines, from working in our grocery stores, to meat packing plants, to our hospitals. Ohioans rely on UFCW workers everyday and UFCW workers know they can rely on me to continue fighting for them.” 

“Senator Sherrod Brown is a true champion of labor,” said UFCW International President Marc Perrone. “From his support of essential front-line workers in farming, meat processing, and grocery, to protecting the hard-earned pensions and retirement security of union members, to promoting fairness on the job for all workers, Sen. Brown has been a steadfast voice in the Senate for working people and their families. His advocacy for critical rights and protections, including the right of any person to unionize their workplace, has helped improve countless lives throughout Ohio and the entire country. We firmly endorse Sen. Brown and look forward to continuing our work with him as a legislator with a clear vision for making workplaces better, safer, and more just.”

“Senator Brown has looked out for workers and UFCW members his entire career,” said UFCW Local 880. “His introduction of the bipartisan bill to lower food costs and strengthen supply chains demonstrates just how much he understands working families in Northeast Ohio. Without him fighting for us, Ohioans would be far worse off.”

“Senator Brown knows that a thriving economy in Central Ohio benefits everyone, including our hard-working members,” said UFCW Local 1059. “He was a leader in passing the CHIPS and Science Act which will bring thousands of good paying jobs to our region and be a major driver of growth.” 

“Because of the work done by Senator Brown to pass the Bipartisan Infrastructure Act, the Kraft Heinz plant will receive over 16 million dollars that will help create more good paying union jobs,” said UFCW Local 75. “Local 75 is proud to stand with him and endorse him for another term representing our great state.” 


UFCW Local 75 President Kevin Garvey“[Sherrod’s] focus is to create a path to the middle class… He not only talks the talk, he walks the walk.” 

Sherrod has always fought for UFCW workers and the Dignity of Work to make sure hard work pays off for everyone:
  • When Wall Street gambled away workers’ retirement savings, Sherrod led the years-long fight to pass the Butch Lewis Act – which successfully saved the pensions of over 100,000 Ohioans, including more than 20,000 UFCW members.
  • Sherrod supported the Fresh Start Workforce Development Program to create new jobs in culinary, retail, and service industries.
  • Sherrod worked to pass the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law with prevailing wage requirements, creating good-paying, union jobs for workers across Ohio rebuilding our infrastructure. Through this legislation, Sherrod secured over $16 million for the Kraft Heinz plant resulting in new, good-paying, union jobs.
  • Sherrod introduced the Restaurant Revitalization Tax Credit Act to help restaurants stay afloat that did not receive funding through the Small Business Administration’s revitalization program.
  • Sherrod introduced the The Food Supply Chain Capacity and Resiliency Act to ensure working families, especially in rural communities, have access to affordable food.
  • Sherrod introduced the Protecting the Right to Organize Act to protect workers’ rights to bargain for fairer wages, better benefits, and safer working conditions.
  • Sherrod introduced the Restoring Overtime Pay Act to enshrine overtime pay protections into law and expand who qualifies for overtime pay so millions more Americans are paid for the hours they work.
  • Sherrod led the CHIPS and Science Act to ensure the future of technology is built in Ohio, by Ohio workers.
  • Sherrod championed the Child Tax Credit expansion to provide working families with financial relief to accommodate the rising prices of healthcare, childcare, and housing.
  • Sherrod introduced the Part-Time Worker Bill of Rights Act to expand pension and family leave benefits and give part-time workers more control over their schedule.
