On July 24 and 25, UFCW 1400 youth comittee held our anual UFCW 1400 youth conference in Saskatoon! Needless to say it was full of energy and laughter . This year was our biggest conference ever, with about 40 delegates from around the province.

We had workshops on "speaking out," which covered public speaking, legalization of marijuana and what it could mean in our workplaces, NDP mla Nicole Sarauer gave us an update from the legislature, and a presentation on systemic racism put on by the saskatoon open door society.

Racism is still deeply entreched in our society and is only magnified by whats happening in the political landscape at home and abroad. It was humbling to see a room full of young workers show understanding and not be so reactionary to differences. We talked about uncomfortable topics , but did it in a way that it was respectful and inclusive .

UfCW 1400 members left the conference feeling inspired and equiped with new knowledge that they'll share in the workplaces.

In solidarity

On June 20, 2018, the unionized employees of the Saskatoon Cooperative voted 92% in favour of rejecting the employerโ€™s best offer to settle. Your bargaining committee is grateful for the support of a resounding majority of the membership in resisting the employerโ€™s proposed concessions to the collective agreement in the form of a 2nd tier of wages that affects the majority of the existing classifications in the unit.
