Loreto GutierrezEmail Loreto Gutierrez
Loreto comes from a family of union activism, and she first joined the UFCW family when she worked as a Unit Clerk at St. Boniface Hospital under UFCW 1869 where she was an active Shop Steward. Being passionate about fairness for workers jumped into UFCW life with the opportunities that were available: From 2008 to 2010, she worked for the Agricultural Workers Alliance program, advocating and aiding the Migrant workers that came in through the Seasonal Agricultural Workers Program (SAWP), and in 2008 she also took part in the Young Internship Program, giving her an insight into UFCW organizing, bargaining, and activism. In the following years, she was active in a 2009 Saskatchewan civic election campaign, and in 2010 she co-facilitated the YIP program. Now that Loreto has joined the staff of UFCW she looks forward to engaging with workers both Union and non-Union.
