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

UFCW Canada's partner, Society for Queer Momentum, is organizing actions across Canada for a first-ever Rainbow Week of Action, from May 11 to 17, 2024. 

UFCW 1006A and members of 1006OUTreach are proud to particpate in this week, which is dedicated to protecting 2SLGBTQ+ rights and freedoms amidst rising hate.

Your union will also be observing the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia on May 17. A series of advocacy actions are set to take place to raise awareness and build solidarity. 

Find information below on planned community rallies, and other actions. Let’s show strong UFCW support!
