If you are not feeling well or you are concerned about being exposed, you are to stay home.

Do you still want to have the advantage of being represented by a union at a new, temporary job? If so, the retailers organized by UFCW Local 135 need part-time, temporary workers. These retailers include Vons, Ralphs, Food 4 Less, Albertsons, Stater Bros, CVS, and Rite Aid. If interested, please apply in person at the stores listed above.


Local 230 will remain open and operational to keep our organization functional as long as we are legally allowed to stay open. We will be performing all the necessary tasks to support our members and to maintain the financial solvency of our organization. We ask that all members call the office for assistance before coming to the office, to help minimize exposure to our staff.


To adhere to the recommendations of the UA General Office, and all Federal, State, and local agencies, we will be implementing the following temporary changes to our Out-Of-Work List procedures effective immediately.

You will be emailed an Employment Separation Form that you must complete and email back. Once the form is received, you will be placed on the appropriate Out-Of-Work List with the date and time that Local 230 receives your email.
