    Community Support

    As a local chapter of the UFCW, you are encouraged to help your local members get connected to the immigration relief they are looking for. Through Novo’s partnership with the UFCW International, you can schedule a staff training event with Novo immigration attorneys, or you can schedule workshops for your members for issues such as Citizenship, Deferred Action for Labor Disputes, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), or Temporary Protected Status (TPS).

    If you are looking to schedule a workshop or a training, please use the drop-down menu below.

    Citizenship Workshops

    Becoming a United States citizen marks the final step in the immigration journey, offering lifelong protection from deportation and opening new opportunities for family members to join in the U.S. This is particularly significant for members of local UFCW chapters with Lawful Permanent Residency status who are eligible for naturalization.

    For UFCW members eligible for naturalization, attending a UCAN workshop is an invaluable resource. It not only simplifies the complex naturalization process but also strengthens the community by providing stability and expanding opportunities for members and their families.

    If your local has members who are eligible for naturalization, schedule a workshop or training with us by using the links above.


    Deferred Action for Labor Disputes

    Under the Biden Administration, undocumented workers with labor rights violations by their employer now have a new form of relief from removal. This initiative, known as deferred action for labor disputes, is a significant step in protecting workers involved in labor disputes.

    • New Relief Form: Protects workers involved in labor disputes from removal.
    • Complaint Submission Requirement: Local unions must first submit a complaint to a labor agency (NLRB, OSHA, EEOC, or state-level equivalent).
    • Statement of Interest: A crucial document from the labor agency indicating its intent to investigate, needed to proceed.
    • Deferred Action Workshop: Offered by Novo Legal to guide local UFCW chapters in protecting their undocumented workers.
    • Work Authorization Benefit: Eligible workers can receive work authorization for up to two years.

    Local UFCW chapters have the opportunity to defend their undocumented members from deportation and secure work authorization. 

    If your local has members who could benefit from deferred action, schedule a workshop or training by clicking the links above.
