Who We Are
A short message from the members of UFCW 1400.
Who We Are
UFCW (United Food and Commercial Workers Union) Local 1400 has been in existence since 1979, with a national history of mergers with other labour organizations reaching back more than a century. Our purpose is to obtain collectively-bargained rights and benefits for our members, and to ensure the terms of Collective Bargaining Agreements, or contracts, are enforced. This is accomplished chiefly at the local union level, and the UFCW National office provides assistance to the locals in negotiating and organizing.
I hope you take an opportunity to view our web page and utilize the information you will discover. Many hours go into building a web page; the design, structure, and content all being considered, but the most important aspect is the current information which assists members in their daily lives.
The web page is designed to appeal to the Local 1400 membership, simple enough to understand and navigate, but complex enough to catch your eye, and interesting enough for you to want to return.
The structure is based upon your union, letting you know the history, services, and people who work and lead your union.
The content is designed to give members the ability to access the services they need at their fingertips, whether contacting a representative, outlining rights, accessing forms or linking you with other labour and community organizations.
Current information is the single most important value of any union’s web page, keeping members in tune with each other; creating a conduit to provide news that is happening in their workplaces and within the local union.
I welcome your comments and suggestions on improving the content of our web page and also encourage you to submit information that may be of value to our members by contacting the union office by phone or email. Please visit often.
Yours in solidarity,
New website is under construction. In the meantime, please visit our national website at www.ufcw.ca
