Merry Christmas / Happy Holidays !


It’s hard to believe that yet another year has come and gone by so quickly. With the long holiday weekend upon us, I wanted to take the opportunity to wish all of you and your loved ones a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, Happy Kwanza… Whatever your religion or the chosen holiday you observe, on behalf of myself and the entire UFCW Local 2013 Executive Board, we wish you all the best this holiday season. Stay safe and enjoy all the season has to offer!

A sincere thanks to all of our members who are “Essential Workers” that still continue to face the challenges of the ongoing Covid cycles and Flu season.

We keep you in our prayers and blessings!

Merry Christmas / Happy Holidays!

COVID19 Vaccinations

Brothers & Sisters,

We have had a rough year (and counting) with regard to all of the concerns over COVID19 and the emerging variants we face as we go into another cold & flu season; with the full approval of the COVID19 Vaccines by the FDA we encourage EVERYONE that is eligible to get Vaccinated and to do it NOW.

In order to beat this deadly virus, we need everyone to do their part to protect one another – this is about protecting your families – your spouses; your children; your siblings; your parents & grandparents… It’s about protecting all of your loved ones; your friends; your co-workers – it’s about protecting  the Essential Workers you depend on and interact with every single day at the grocery store; the hospitals & healthcare facilities; the food delivery & service industry workers… people who have no choice but to interact with hundreds of customers each day to keep our country and economy running !

We need to Care about and do all we can to protect one another now so we can stop this virus from getting worse and/or mutating worse…. We need to do it before it’s too late and we start going backwards – or worse yet, wind up having Vaccines that become useless because we didn’t take it seriously to stop it when we could!

As we enter the Fall/Winter Seasons, I hope you and your families ALL stay safe & healthy and I wish you all the very best – let’s not forget the pain of the last year+ by being complacent; GET VACCINATED NOW!


In Solidarity,
Louis Mark Carotenuto – President
