"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
