Canada Safeway/Sobeys

Canada Safeway has a long history in the retail food industry within the province of Alberta, spanning more than 7 decades. They first became unionized in southern Alberta in 1952, and 1953 in northern Alberta. There are now 75 retail stores across the province in addition to gas bars and liquor stores, where we represent approximately 8200 workers.  Our members assist customers, run cash registers, stock shelves, bake, put out produce and provide floral and pharmacy services. Surviving many changes over the years, Canada Safeway was purchased by Sobeys in 2014.
