UFCW Canada leaders from across the country met in Toronto on October 20 to focus on a number of key issues facing the union and its future, including the status of the Growth Agenda and current trends in the Canadian food retail industry.
In addition to hearing from the union's four National Committees (see DIRECTIONS 10.40), the members of the union’s national executive board also received a very detailed analysis of the Canadian food retail business from an industry analyst who focused on the rapidly changing nature of one of Canada's most important and profitable sectors.
UFCW Canada National President Wayne Hanley chaired the meeting and reported, “The National Council and its committees remain very focused on realizing the objectives of the One Union, One Voice program, and continue to make very steady progress on the union’s strategy for the future.”
