Break Schedule coming to PC Express

December 17, 2019

Since PC Express (formerly Click and Collect) had been introduced in Loblaw stores, our members have been feeling pressured to get all of their work done.

Results from a survey we sent out to our members show a majority of members are voluntarily not taking their breaks, and some have even been denied breaks.

“Many of our members were concerned that if they take their breaks, their work won’t get done and then they would be disciplined,” said Roberta Hoogervorst, Retail Coordinator for UFCW Local 832.

Election results are in

August 22, 2019

At 4:32 today, we received the results from the commissioner, and we regret to inform you that UFCW 832 was not successful in retaining any of our members in health care. 

We are sad, of course, to lose our health care members through this ridiculous process. UFCW has stood up for our members at St. Boniface, Grace Hospital, WRHA Laundry, and across the Northern Regional Health Authority for a very long time. Supporting health care will always be an important part of who we are as a union.
