Today, we mark an exciting and historic occasion as Local 1000A and Local 206 come together as one to form a stronger, more diverse and powerful local union, UFCW Canada Local 1006A.
"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
On April 28, your union will join labour and community allies in coming together to mark the National Day of Mourning. This event is about remembering workers killed, injured or made ill on the job and resolving to prevent future tragedies.
