Why Join UFCW?

You have the RIGHT to join a Union. That right is guaranteed under the Ontario Labour Relations Act (OLRA)
and the Canadian Charter of Rights & Freedoms, under Freedom of Association.

The Process

So how does the process work? Contact the Union, and meet with Union Organizers to discuss workplace concerns and how the Union can help solve those issues for you. Workers are asked to sign confidential Union cards indicating they want to join the Union.


New members of UFCW Locals 175 & 633 don’t pay union dues until after the Union has negotiated, and you and your co-workers have ratified, your first collective agreement. That contract must be ratified by more than 50% of the workers who attend the vote.


Local 175 has some of the strongest collective agreements in Canada. When you belong to the Union, UFCW Local 175 will help ensure you have safer working conditions, more respect on the job, good wages and good health and welfare benefits.
