UFCW rejoins NW Oregon Labor Council


United Food and Commercial Workers Local 555 has re-affiliated with the Northwest Oregon Labor Council (NOLC) effective April 1. NOLC executive secretary-treasurer Bob Tackett announced the news April 11.

Local 555, which represents grocery workers and others, was long a part of NOLC but disaffiliated in March 2021, citing unexpected expenses incurred over the prior months. Both before it left and now that it’s back, Local 555 was NOLC’s largest affiliate.

NOLC is a local coordinating body for AFL-CIO-affiliated unions in the Portland metro area and is Oregon’s only local central labor council.
