As a member of UFCW Canada you have the bargaining power and protection of Canada’s largest private-sector union. Companies like to bad mouth unions but the facts tell a very different story. Union members make more money, have better pensions and benefits, get more paid vacation, and are protected against harassment and unfair discipline from managers.

These are just some of the advantages of a typical UFCW Canada collective agreement including:
