In workplaces and communities big and small across the country, the United Food and Commercial Workers is Canada's leading and most progressive union. Our UFCW Canada family stands strong together always, with more than 250,000 members coast to coast.
Our UFCW family is found in every province, every city, every neighbourhood: our UFCW Canada members work in retail, manufacturing, and service sectors, and more. The largest component of our membership works at some level of the food industry – from the farm field to the table, UFCW members are there.
UFCW Canada's roots reach back more than a hundred years. From the beginning, activism at work and in the community has been the heart of our great union. Just as then, that commitment is needed now to preserve our gains and to push back the attack on the human and labour rights of working people. We are fighting for a more just society, where every person can live, work, and thrive.
As Canada's innovative union we are leading the effort for greater fairness, and thanks to the strength of UFCW Canada members, activists and their local unions, we are creating better workplaces and building stronger communities.
Together, we can build a better future of fairness, justice and equality for workers and all Canadians.
