Over the past three years, UFCW has launched several programs to help members of our union family build a better life through continuing education.
Unfortunately, one of those programs—the free foreign language program—changed its terms and UFCW was forced to end their contract with that company.
However, UFCW is happy to announce that, starting March 9, members will have access to a replacement foreign language program that will provide even more value. While the old program offered classes in five different languages, the new program will offer classes in 70 languages, including 20 different ESL courses.
Much like the previous program, members will register through the UFCW’s website. Once our membership office can verify in our records that an applicant is a current member, in good standing, they will be able to sign up and start taking classes.
Seats in this program are limited and will be given on a first come, first serve basis. If a seat sits unused for 90 days, we will open it up to allow another member to apply.
Again, the program will start on March 9.
Thank you for all you do to support our union family.
