Governor Phil Murphy

Statement from UFCW International President Marc Perrone


"New Jersey frontline grocery workers have put their lives on the line daily to make sure families have the food they need during this pandemic. Governor Murphy's is showing the leadership New Jersey workers need by keeping the state's mask mandate in place. 

"While vaccinations are helping us slow the spread of COVID, the pandemic is far from over and we cannot let our guard down. As the union for frontline food and retail workers across the country, UFCW is calling on governors to follow the lead of states like New Jersey and Hawaii that are keeping these life-saving mask mandates in place as we work to vaccinate the millions of Americans still at risk."
