Your Union Contract

Your union contract is one of the most important tools that you have as a UFCW Canada Local 649 member. It contains practical information about your wages, benefits, and working conditions, as well as your rights at work. This legally binding agreement directly affects your life, from when your raises take effect to the types of benefits that you are entitled to access.

The rights and privileges outlined in your union contract were achieved through the determination and unity of union members like yourself working together for fairness at work. Union negotiators, together with workers from your bargaining unit, negotiated many of the gains that you enjoy in your workplace through the collective bargaining process. Your union contract was voted on and approved by the membership in your workplace.
