Ontario's Union for fairness, equality and respect at work.

UFCW Canada Local 1006A is proud to welcome call centre workers from the Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS) to the union family.

The new members, who work in downtown Toronto, voted this week to join UFCW Canada, becoming the first unionized workers in Ontario from the cannabis sector. 

The cannabis industry is a precarious one, from which workers were seeking fairer working conditions, job security and just cause protection. 

“UFCW Canada has a strong track record of providing outstanding union representation to our members, and we are proud to be the first union in Ontario to represent workers from the growing Cannabis industry,” said President Wayne Hanley. “Welcome to our union family and we look forward to working with our newest members to improve their working conditions and livelihoods.”

UFCW Canada represents thousands of workers in the cannabis sector in Quebec and the United States.

The call centre is operated by Line One Contact Centres Inc. Our members provide customer support and mail tracking services for Ontario’s online cannabis store.
