UFCW 770 Mourns the Passing of our former President Ricardo Icaza. President Icaza was a member of our Union for 64 years. He started as a rank-and-file box clerk and eventually rose to become our President for 36 years.
His vision as a leader helped put our Union at the forefront of the Labor movement in California and beyond. He mentored and developed the great leadership we are fortunate to have today, and emphasized the importance of organizing new Union members and developing strong member leaders.
Rick never stopped in his fight to improve the lives of workers against the oppression of greedy corporations. The fight continues and we are in a better place due to his leadership.
Rest in Power President Ricardo Icaza.
