UFCW Local 400 president Mark Federici was elected this week to the Executive Board of the United Food & Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW) as International Vice President. “I have dedicated my entire life to the labor movement because I truly believe in the power of ordinary people to make extraordinary things happen," said Federici. "I have always taken it as my personal responsibility to do whatever I can to grow our union into the strong, effective institution it must become in order to make a difference in the lives of hard-working men and women. For the last 26 years, it has been my greatest privilege to represent the 35,000 members of UFCW Local 400 in the Mid-Atlantic, and now I am honored to expand this responsibility to the 1.3 million members of UFCW across the United States and Canada.” The union’s executive board is the UFCW's highest governing body. Federici also serves on the Executive Board of the Metro Washington Council.
