UFCW Local 1262 & Employer Benefit Funds

President Harvey Whille's PhotoA Message from UFCW Local 1262 President Harvey Whille

Our members health and well-being — as well as knowing they will have a secure future when they retire — are important to all of us here at Local 1262. That is why we consistently negotiate a comprehensive package of benefits with your employers during our collective bargaining sessions. These benefits are what set you apart from non-union workers in your industry and help you and your family enjoy a healthier, secure lifestyle.

At a time when many employers are charging monthly co-payments to cover health insurance premiums – or eliminating health care benefits and pensions entirely – Local 1262 members continue to enjoy valuable benefits such as:

  • Health Care and Hospitalization
  • Prescription Coverage
  • Dental Care
  • Vision Care
  • Mental Health Services
  • Pre-Paid Legal Services
  • Pension Benefits
  • Life Insurance

These benefits – paid for by your employers but negotiated on your behalf by the officers of Local 1262 – greatly add to the value of your union membership and to your compensation level in general.

We at Local 1262 are pleased to provide these benefits to our members and take comfort knowing that our members have the peace of mind which affordable, comprehensive health care coverage provides to you and your family.

As always, I consider it a privilege to represent you and to protect you and your family’s health and well-being.
