In a union, I don't have to fear being wrongfully fired because I know my back is covered. There are rules set up and people to make sure they're being followed. This provides the stability I need while I study without the fear of being wrongfully dismissed. The union has helped keep a stable, and reliable job which I attend school and I couldn't ask for anything more!" Laura Fisher, Loblaws Great Food Ottawa.
UFCW Canada Local 1006A members working at No Frills voted 80 per cent in favour of a new collective agreement with franchise owners at membership meetings and polling stations across Ontario.
Members voted on the six year deal at more than 60 meetings and polls.
UFCW Canada Local 1006A delegates turned “Passion into Action” as they joined more than 300 activists and leaders from across North America for the 12th Biennial UFCW Women’s Network Convention.
UFCW Canada Local 1006A was proud to observe the International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia on May 17, 2016.
The day is marked in 130 countries around the world and is intended to raise awareness and spur action against the discrimination, prejudice and violence faced by members of the LGBTQ community around the world.
Local 1006A members will have the opportunity to review and vote on details of the tentative agreement at ratification meetings and polls, which have been scheduled throughout the province.
Your union strongly encourages you to attend the ratification meeting and/or poll in your area and have your say.
"I am very grateful to my union for protecting my rights as a No Frills employee. Upon starting my university studies in 2014, I applied for the UFCW Local 1000A scholarship... Since the union’s scholarship helped reduce the high cost of university, the union has made a positive impact in my life." – Connor Hartson, Gord and Kim's No Frills in Kingston
