We wanted to send you a friendly reminder to join our special live Question and Answer Zoom meeting tonight at 7 PM. President Tom Hesse, Secretary Treasurer Richelle Stewart, and Executive Director and your lead negotiator Chris O’Halloran are all looking forward to talking to you about negotiations with Superstore and its progress. They’re also excited to take your questions – we know there are many!
Zoom meetings are great because you can participate in them practically anywhere, but sometimes it can take a few minutes to get logged in. You can join the meeting up to 30 minutes before the start time in order to ensure you can sort out any technical issues you may have.

Our meeting hosts will also be talking about important information regarding dental and health and welfare benefits available to part-time employees.
Thousands of UFCW members across Canada have, through their union bargaining committees, negotiated dental and health benefit plans that are fully paid for by their employers. These benefit plans are administered by a non-profit benefit trust called The PBAS Group. Members who enroll, and work as little as an average of ten hours per week, enjoy a number of benefits. The plans provide dental, prescription, vision care, sick pay, and a death benefit program for themselves and their dependents.
We have provided a brief video, which describes what a benefit trust is, how it functions, and what this means for members.
