Colton Rose (UFCW 367)

Colton was a grocery worker and member of UFCW Local 367 for ten years. He was always interested in class struggle, but it was the Covid pandemic and the fight for hazard pay that solidified his resolve to build worker power. After winning hazard pay in Olympia, Colton saw the power that workers can wield, and he committed himself to helping his non-union coworkers form a union. Shortly after that Colton became a full time labor organizer with his local helping others across southwest Washington form unions to fight for the things that matter to them. If you're interested in improving your working conditions Colton would be more than happy to speak with you.
