Jeff Traeger became the third full-time President in the 76 year history of UFCW Local 832 in the fall of 2011.
Besides leading the largest private sector union in Manitoba, Jeff also serves as the Secretary Treasurer of the Manitoba Federation of Labour and represents the interests of working people as a member of the Labour Management Review Committee.
Nationally, Jeff is the Manitoba representative on the Human Rights, Equity and Diversity Committee for UFCW Canada, and also represents the province on the UFCW National Defense Fund where he sits as an administration and audit committee member. He is a member of the UFCW Canada National Council and an Advisory Committee member for the UFCW International Union headquartered in Washington D.C.
Jeff chairs both the Adult Learning Centre Board and the local’s Education and Training Trust Fund and is always looking for new ways to open doors and create educational opportunities for Local 832 members and their families. His passion for finding ways to make our union inclusive and relevant has driven many of the local’s diversity and community initiatives to another level and he provides strong leadership for the local’s Community Action Network.
“Being the president for such a progressive organization gives me the opportunity to work with and for many good and talented people. It makes it possible for me to have a positive influence on people’s lives on a daily basis, and that is truly an honour”.
