Join the Union


Join the union and combine your voice with more than 250,000 workers across Canada. Together, we work and live in thousands of communities across the country, from British Columbia to Newfoundland.

By joining the union, you gain the Union Advantage of becoming an important part of Canada's leading and most progressive employee rights and social justice organization.

UFCW Canada Members work in a wide range of industries, including retail stores, warehouses, healthcare, food processing, retirement homes, pharmaceuticals, meat packing, hotels, security, restaurants, community services, banking, building maintenance, clothing, textile, municipal government and many others.

It is this diversity of membership and workers that gives UFCW Canada its strength. We are not dependent on a small handful of industries, as some unions are. Whatever is happening with Canada's economy, we remain strong.

By joining the union and becoming a member of UFCW Canada, you can always count on being represented professionally, whether your employer is a small establishment or a large transnational corporation.
