New Members

Our mission is to represent our members in every aspect of their working lives. We negotiate and enforce contracts with employers that improve working conditions, wages, hours, benefits, and retirement. Our contracts also give workers protection from unfair discipline and protect their rights on the job.

In accordance with the labor agreement between your employer and UFCW Local 367, all employees working under our jurisdiction must join the Union on or before the 30th day of their employment. Your employer has agreed to payroll deduction of your union dues and initiation fees. This was negotiated as part of your contract.

If you are new to the Union, an initiation fee will apply and will be billed in 13 equal weekly installments. This fee along with your weekly dues rate will be deducted weekly. Since all job classifications are different, if you are promoted or move to another position, you need to contact the Union and update your membership.

If you are not working due to a leave of absence or injury you will need to contact Membership Services to temporarily withdraw from the Union. After your temporary withdrawal, you will not be charged dues until you return to work. Upon returning back to work, you are required to contact the Union to avoid back dues. Contact Membership Services at  (253) 589-0367 ext 103.

If you leave your job, you are required to notify the Union office. If you have paid all dues and initiation owed, the Union will close your membership in good standing, and you will not need to pay another initiation fee if you go back for a UFCW 367 shop.

We will stand together, and we will fight together for better lives for ourselves, our families, and our communities. 

New Member Meeting

A new member meeting is an important step to learning about the benefits and protections you will have with your new UFCW 367 union job. The monthly meeting is a perfect opportunity for you to receive answers to your union questions.

If you attend a new member meeting, within 60 days of your hire date, you will receive a one-time $25 credit, which is applied toward your initiation. 


​The new member meeting will be held on the last Tuesday of every month at 9:00 am and 4:00 pm. The meetings are held virtually (over Zoom) with the Local 367 union President, Michael Hines. You can attend the meeting via your phone, tablet, or computer. 
If you do not have Zoom on your device it will prompt you to download Zoom.
