About 401

The United Food & Commercial Workers Union, Local 401 proudly boasts an incredibly diverse membership. With approximately 32,000 members across the province of Alberta, our membership consists of men and women who work in a broad range of industries and sectors. Primarily working in retail food sales and production, our hardworking members also work in the healthcare, gaming, distilling, oil and gas, hospitality, and warehousing sectors.

In the challenging political climate of Alberta, we are also proud of the many union contracts we have negotiated with dozens of different employers, many of which include trendsetting contract language unique to the particular industry it covers. None of this could be achieved without the dedication and strength of  the members at each of these workplaces.

We invite you to take a moment to discover for yourself what UFCW 401 is all about. Check out our short video and find out who we are, who we represent, and why we are so passionate about being leaders in the labour community throughout Canada.
