Internship at Local 881 United Food and Commercial Workers

Local 881 UFCW represents 34,000 members employed in retail food and drug stores throughout Illinois and Northwest Indiana, as well as a professional division comprised of health and nursing home workers, barbers and cosmetologists, and workers in other retail and service industries. Among the companies under contract with Local 881 are Jewel Food Stores, Osco Drug, Mariano’s Fresh Market, CVS Pharmacy, Kroger, Schnucks, Dierbergs, and many smaller chains and independent stores, as well as nursing homes and other business establishments. Local 881 is among the largest affiliates of the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union, which represents 1.3 million members in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.

The goal of Local 881 UFCW’s Legislative and Political division is to advocate on behalf of our 34,000 members at the local, state, and federal level. We do so both at the ballot box through our political work and in the seats of various governments through direct lobbying of elected officials.

Our political program will begin in earnest heading into the fall where we will embed in Tier 1 races throughout Chicagoland, Southern Illinois, and in the Metro East region in Southwestern Illinois to help endorsed candidates.

We will have a communications component for this position, helping our various legislative and political projects promote their message across multiple digital platforms, while also utilizing the latest analytical and big-data analysis of voter information to effectively engage and advocate on behalf of Local 881 members.
