UFCW 401 Members’ Conference 2019

What an exciting time to be a UFCW 401 member!

Our union continues to break new ground in bargaining campaigns and grow through key organizing victories. With 32,000 members across the province, we are the largest and one of the most diverse private sector unions in Alberta.

We are also evolving to enhance our members’ experience with their union through greater member engagement. We are developing more ways to connect union members through active, member-driven committees and the use of new technologies.

As a member of UFCW Local 401, all of our success is because of you, and all of it belongs to you.

We’re hosting a conference to both celebrate our success and help to strengthen and build our union.

Join us as we make it ours, together.

March 14-17, 2019
