Website Exposes Group's Smear Campaign

NEW WEBSITE EXPOSES UNION GROUP’S SMEAR CAMPAIGN
The UFC® Has A Proud History Of Supporting
Social And Community Issues
 
The Ultimate Fighting Championship® announced today that it has launched a new website providing information on the Culinary Workers Union Local 226’s (Culinary Union), an affiliate of UNITE HERE, ongoing campaign against the UFC® and its partners. While allegedly claiming concern about the conduct of certain UFC fighters, the Culinary Union has in fact launched an inaccurate and misleading smear campaign. The new website will correct those inaccuracies and set the record straight regarding the motivation for this campaign, while highlighting the UFC’s role as a strong community leader.

“The UFC has a proud history of supporting positive social and community issues. The continued baseless attacks from the Culinary Union are nothing more than a distraction from their real agenda to force hard-working employees to submit under their leadership. We will take a proactive approach and dispel any falsehood lobbed at the UFC and our partners because remaining a strong community leader is vitally important to us and our future.”
 
The UFC has a proud tradition of supporting philanthropic programs in the community and strives to have a positive impact across a range of social and community issues, which are detailed on the UFC Community website at www.ufc.com/community.
 
With a diverse group of over 400 athletes from 35 different countries, the UFC holds those athletes to the highest of standards for the conduct. The UFC’s Code of Conduct condemns any inappropriate behavior that runs counter to its values and culture, and outlines disciplinary procedures for those who violate its terms. Further, fighters are contractually prohibited from engaging in inappropriate conduct. The UFC regularly hosts fighter summits to tackle issues of conduct and make clear the high expectations of the UFC.
 
The UFC has a proven track record of supporting important social causes including the Gay and Lesbian Community Center of Southern Nevada, Boys and Girls Clubs, March of Dimes, Clinton Bush Haiti Fund, and Boys Town among many others. As strong supporters of the armed forces and our country’s service men and women, the UFC has raised over $12 million for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, on which Frank and Lorenzo Fertitta serve as Board Members.
 
About The Culinary Union And The UFC
The Culinary Union represents workers in the hotel, food service and gaming industries.  For more than a decade, the Culinary Union has attempted to unionize the employees of Station Casinos, a gaming and entertainment company in Las Vegas, Nevada that is majority-owned by Frank Fertitta III and Lorenzo Fertitta, who are also majority owners of the UFC. Station Casinos and UFC are completely different legal entities with different sets of minority owners.
 
Founded over three decades ago, Station Casinos prides itself on its treatment of its 12,000 employees.  Station Casinos was named one of the “100 Best Companies to Work For” four years in a row – an honor no other gaming company has ever received.
