Some UFCW Canada activist members from Saskatchewan recently got the big picture on organizing at a workshop held recently in Saskatoon. National representatives Chris O’Halloran and Lily Olson facilitated the three-day workshop.
Starting this month, UFCW Canada activists will have a new resource in their political action toolboxes. Politics NOW! is a new weekly bulletin published by the National Political Action Department that focuses on the political stories and issues that are most important to UFCW Canada members and their communities.
The UFCW is applauding U.S. President Barack Obama for signing into law a new overhaul of the American food safety system, which was recently passed by Congress. U.S. food safety regulations have been sorely in need of updating and this new law makes significant progress by strengthening oversight and consumer protection.
