    AFT  Local 1360

    The UFCW is into food, not fighting.

    “But several people have approached our trailer, very excited because they thought we are the Ultimate Fighting Champions,” Caitlin Blair said with a chuckle. “That’s always funny.”

    Blair is communications and political director of Louisville-based United Food and Commercial Workers Local 227. The local is proud of its custom-made trailer that volunteers pull around the state, mainly to raise money for members in financial straits.

    For the record: the UFC is mixed martial arts; the UFCW is a mix of workers employed in industry and retailing, mostly involving manufacturing, processing and selling foodstuffs.

    Anyway, the big, four-wheel trailer, which features a fully-equipped kitchen, is decorated with union logos and photos of Local 227 members superimposed over a waving Stars and Stripes. "A voice for working people" is emblazoned on the sides. 

    "Harold Embry did all the custom work on our trailer to make it the perfect way to bring people together," Blair said.

    The trailer is air-conditioned, and has tables, cooking gear and a toilet. It is also equipped with a portable grill that can be rolled out for cookouts. 

    The trailer is towed behind a shiny red Dodge diesel truck.

    Local 227 bought the trailer to prepare and sell food to raise money for Local 227 members who need extra cash for medical bills or for other emergencies, such as losing their homes to fires or storms.

    “However, the Louisville heath department recently told us we can’t sell food anymore unless we want to become a food truck,” Blair said. “So, we are exploring different ways that the trailer can be used to bring union members together.”

    To that end, a crew transported the trailer 235 miles from the Falls City to the annual Fancy Farm political picnic in Graves County, about as far west as Kentucky goes.

    “We sent out over 2,200 text messages to our union members that live in and work in the area around Fancy Farm,” Blair explained. “We had 100 plus union members and their families come and visit us.”

    The picnic is famous for barbecue and political speechmaking, both spicy hot. "We can serve food, but we can’t sell food,” she said.

    Blair’s husband, Bob, the Local 227 president, bought 20 pounds of hickory-smoked pork and 10 pounds of mutton at the barbecue stand and gave it away as sandwiches or piled on plates. 

    “We wanted our members to have an opportunity to come and get free barbecue through the union and enjoy the picnic and the company of each other,” said Caitlin, who had...
