401’s Theresa McLaren Wins Prestigious Labour Activist Award

We are so proud of UFCW 401 Secretary Treasurer Theresa McLaren for winning the Yvonne Schmitz Award, which honours union members who are active in their community, their union, or The United Way or their funded agencies/programs .

The Yvonne Schmitz Award was created in 2009 in honour of the past Alberta Labour Relations Board member responsible for being the driving force behind the establishment of a labour program at United Way of Calgary and Area.

Unions and Associations nominate one of their members who have played a key role as a volunteer helping others. By creating this award, they seek to honour individuals who strive to initiate changes for working people, for their commitment to the labour movement and their community at large.

Congratulations, Theresa!  Your service and dedication to not only UFCW members, but all working people, is exemplary and you make us proud to have you as one of our esteemed leaders.
