Our Pharmacy Workers UnionMakes Work Better

At retail pharmacies, being understaffed and overworked is an everyday challenge. Meeting the high demand of filling hundreds of prescriptions with limited support isn’t just unsustainable; it’s unfair. With more than 80 years of advocating for pharmacy workers, UFCW Local 880 is ready to stand with you and your coworkers to fight for better working conditions. Joining our Walgreens pharmacy union is a powerful step toward securing the fair staffing levels you need to work safely and effectively, wages that you can be proud of and the dignity you deserve.

Fair staffing levels aren’t a convenience—they’re a necessity. For pharmacists and pharmacy technicians who often face the daunting task of filling hundreds of prescriptions daily, adequate staffing is critical to ensure safety, accuracy and the well-being of both staff and patients. UFCW Local 880 advocates for reasonable workloads that allow pharmacists and pharmacy techs to perform their best work without the risk of burnout or error. When you have the support you need, everyone benefits—from your coworkers to the community you serve.

Your work keeps the billion-dollar pharmacy industry alive. When you join our pharmacy worker’s union, we fight together for corporations to rightly invest in you — their most valuable asset. Together, we push for wages that honor your critical role in healthcare.

Together, we can reshape the pay scale in your favor. We aggressively advocate for a pay structure that accelerates your journey to the top pay bracket. Standing with your coworkers, you can reach the peak of your earning potential faster.

A Long History of Advocating for Pharmacists

Retail pharmacists began organizing with UFCW’s predecessors, the retail clerks, as early as the 1930s. Today, UFCW Local 880 represents thousands of pharmacy and drugstore workers throughout Northeast Ohio. We have a unique understanding of the chronic shortstaffing and ever-changing demands pharmacists face each day. That’s why we work tirelessly to increase staffing levels and ensure unionized pharmacists and pharmacy technicians have a voice in their careers.
