Welcome to Traitor Joe's New York, right now we're asking workers if they're treated as fairly as they should be. Are they getting what the rest of the industry is getting? Or is Joe short changing them? We'd like to tell you a little about our history.

The United Food and Commercial Workers Union Local 1500 has a long a successful history of representing workers throughout the Metropolitan New York area. It is a story of a Union that has shown a steady growth of membership and fine contracts.

With over 22,000 members, Local 1500 is one of the largest Locals in the UFCW and all of New York State. Our union represents working men and women in Queens, Staten Island, Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess Counties.

Our members work for companies that have a long history in NY as well. King Kullen, D'Agostinos, Pathmark, Edward's, Gristede's, and Shop Rite have been serving New Yorkers for many years.

Local 1500 has developed a well deserved reputation of delivering outstanding contracts, passionately servicing its members, and organizing the unorganized. It is thanks to the efforts of the many former officers and staff representatives over the past 60 years that Local 1500 is the outstanding Union it is today. Visit our website for more information
