As a unionized worker who is a member at UFCW Locals 175 & 633, you have the right to:

  • Have a Union Steward present at any discipline meeting with your employer.
  • Just Cause protection, which means you cannot be fired without a justifiable reason
  • File a grievance (formal complaint) if the employer violates a part of your collective agreement.
  • Have input on bargaining for your collective agreement.
  • Vote on your contracts and Union bylaws and policies, and participate in Union meetings.
  • Benefit from the provisions of your collective agreement and know the Union will hold your employer accountable.
