If you could choose to be represented by either union which would you pick?

Well.. pretty sure the UFCW is partially owned/carried by Kroger(yes I am saying the Union has sold out to Kroger). So it depends on how trustworth Teamster is.

the teamsters even though I have read some union members are upset with their union leadership. the ufcw has sold out to the Kroger co. I have always heard that the teamsters union will fight for you. we definitely need new union representation.

As the UFCW play golf with the management, the Teamsters would picket and protest as management tried to play golf.  The UFCW is a joke.

With our last contract (we no longer get raises , we get a stupid ratification bonus , which we only see 50% of it due to the fact that Kroger writes it off as a gift tax , so they don't have to pay tax on it , we are taxed to death over it) I asked my rep about teamsters ( his father's job was represented through the teamsters) He would not answer , he changed the subject. I think the Teamsters would do a great job getting better pay and benefits.

Honestly, we are all only with the UFCW because of insurance. But how much longer will that last?

I think the Teamsters have lost their balls, unless you are one of the old dogs. Then they will protect them because of the time.

If you are new and just trying to do the right thing forget about support.

I have been lied to by both the union business  agent and shop steward. 

And last with inflation at 9% the best the Teamster did for me is a $0.50 raise this year.

This means I am making less today then 2 years ago when the contract was negotiated.

WOW $0.50 is about a 1.6% raise. After a 5 year contract and the current rate of inflation my pay will move from BS to just S.

Don't know much about Teamsters but if they are hard-assed, activist, responsive, enforcement-minded or anything like that they might be worth a try. UFCW in my experience is unwilling to accept trouble when the company brings it. Felt like I was being set up.

 That's because you were. UFCW is incompetent to the level of criminal behavior, imo. I guarentee they're paid off regularly by the companies workers are payhing for their protection from.

They're the same similar union. It boils down to what line of work you want to work in.

Without googling, the Teamsters at least have a reputation of being effective.

UFCW is not only corrupt and rotten to the core, but is also entirely useless.

 Agree on both points.

I was with the Teamsters and, while they've got issues, overall they're worth your union dues. 

UFCW is so dirty they should seriously be illegalized. I'm amazed some of their reps / top leaders haven't caught some lead confuse
