COVID-19 Action

We have 32,000 members who work for dozens of employers across the Alberta economy. The COVID-19 challenge – in our workplaces and in our communities – can’t be met in a uniform way. We’ve been working around the clock to ensure our members are safe, supported, and have economic security through this crisis.

Since March 2020, we have written to every employer that has had at least one workplace case of COVID-19. We have circulated those letters to members in affected workplaces by email and text message.

If you are a UFCW Local 401 member and would like to see our letter addressing COVID-19 positive cases or outbreaks in your worksite, please write to us at

On April 23, 2020, we wrote an extensive letter to Alberta Premier Jason Kenney calling for action to protect food workers. That letter is available here.
