Why Form a Union?

When you form a union with UFCW, you are never without the backing or resources you need to protect your rights. 

Instead of being forced to deal with an employer alone, unionized workers have a strong voice in negotiating the conditions of their employment and protecting their rights on the job. 

A collective agreement is a powerful tool that safeguards you and your co-workers from unfair treatment, discrimination and disrespect.

It is a legally-binding contract that covers all aspects of your working life and provides you with a grievance and arbitration process to resolve workplace disputes.

When you form a union you can also access a wide range of benefits and resources including strong service representation, education and training opportunities, health and safety support, WCB advocacy, and more.
