Unions and Associations

Two of the most prominent trade associations serving cashiers and other retail workers are the National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) and the National Retail Federation (NRF). The NACS has thousands of member companies in the United States and about 50 foreign countries. When you visit your local 7-Eleven or stop to refuel your car and step into the nearest convenience store, that store and gas station owners are most likely to be represented by the NACS. The NACS conducts market research, hosts conferences and trade shows, and performs political and legal advocacy on behalf of its members. It is especially concerned with the regulation of motor fuels, high credit card swipe fees, and labor laws. The NRF is the world's largest trade association. It represents all types and sizes of retail owners in the United States and 45 countries overseas. NRF retailers support one in four jobs in the United States—some 42 million Americans. The United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW) has 1.3 million members who are found mainly in grocery and retail stores and in the food processing and meatpacking industries. The UFCW advocates for its workers on issues of social and economic justice.
