Secretary Treasurer’s Message

Secretary Treasurer
of UFCW Local 401

Providing our members with excellent services and ensuring everyone has access to these services is a top priority of United Food & Commercial Workers Union, Local 401.

All across the province, we asked our members for feedback on how we can better provide them with access to the varied services and programmes offered by this union. We listened and are implementing these changes across our network, this new website is one such major change.

We are growing along with our membership and are diversifying in both our skills and people to better reflect our members and more effectively respond to their changing needs at work and in the community.

We remain committed to the values of equality and equity in the workplace for all our members while our resolve for justice, dignity and safety at work remains as strong as ever.

Our rich history, as working Albertans leading and progressive voice, has been filled with victories and proud moments that we must remember to celebrate and share to inspire our younger Brothers and Sisters in this union.

As we carry on with our focus to listen and learn from the feedback of our membership as well as with our commitment to the highest service for our members, I am hopeful for our continued success as a labour union in the years to come.

Thank you for visiting our website. Whether you are a union member, labour ally or simply curious about the labour movement in Alberta, you will find that our new website has been designed to be an interactive and user-friendly experience. We hope you will visit us often to access the many member tools of this site as well as to find the latest union news and information.

In solidarity,

Theresa McLaren
