Rouyn-Noranda, Que. – August 20, 2015 – Workers at the Super C grocery store in Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec are the newest members of UFCW Canada Local 501 after a majority of employees said "Yes!" to joining the union. The new bargaining unit was certified by the Quebec Labour Relations Board following an application submission earlier this summer.
Super C is owned by Metro, the third-largest grocery chain in Canada and one of the major employers represented by UFCW Canada.
"We would like to welcome the new Super C members to our great union," says UFCW Canada Local 501 President Alain Lachaîne. "By joining UFCW, these workers have chosen the best union for food and retail workers in Canada, and they can be sure that we will support their rights and advance their interests in the workplace," Brother Lachaîne adds.
