Local 791 Organizers
Dear Shaws/Star Employee:
Welcome to the UFCW Local 791 web page. Local 791 represents over 4,000 Shaws supermarket employees in 33 stores and 2 distribution centers.
This link on our web site is designed to inform employees not yet represented by Local 791 of facts and figures that vitally affect your employment. Many benefits provided non-union employees differ in significant ways from those guaranteed by Local 791 contracts with Shaws/Star. This web site will detail comparisons in health insurance costs, pension and retirement benefits, grievance and arbitration and other areas.
I and the staff and members of Local 791 are committed to bringing all Shaws/Star employees under union contract so that all may share the benefits and protections of Local 791 agreements. Unfortunately, Shaws/Star management does not share this vision, and the company has taken steps to prevent you from learning about the benefits of union representation. This web site is intended to help us communicate with you in these matters.
We also plan question and answer sections that will address your questions and concerns about working for Shaws/Star and representation by Local 791.

provided in the union contract, you will agree that "The work's the same - the
