UFCW Local 655 continues historic organizing campaign at Dollar General with second union election f

655 is filing for union election at a second store after becoming the first union in history to win an election at Dollar General just months ago
St. Louis, MO – Dollar General employees will decide if the store at 10060 Halls Ferry Road, 63136, in St. Louis will become the second store in the company’s history to vote for unionization after employees at an Auxvasse, MO store became the first ever to vote to join a union late last year.

The Auxvasse store voted for representation from United Food and Commercial Workers Local 655 in December of 2017. After the historic win, Local 655 — the state’s largest private sector local union — began working with employees at other Dollar General stores that were interested in union representation. Local 655 organizers filed for an election today at the Halls Ferry after 100 percent of the employees signed union authorization cards approving an election.

“I’m excited that the employees of Dollar General will have an opportunity to choose to join our union family,” said UFCW Local 655 President David Cook. “Working Missourians deserve a chance for a better life, and that’s exactly what a union can offer them.”
