Pledge your support for frontline workers

We’re UFCW union members and your neighbours on the frontline, working day and night across the country to make sure you have the food, healthcare, security and vital services you need to stay safe during the COVID-19 crisis.

With your help, let’s make sure that health, safety and fairness are top priorities today and everyday in the future. Please join our pledge to pay it forward to our shared community and:

  • call on governments to properly protect the health and safety of frontline workers and all workers, and to legislate paid sick leave and mental health services;

  • work together as consumers, neighbours and frontline workers to demand stronger safeguards for our food supply chain. This includes proper personal protective equipment and effective enforcement by Public Health authorities, provincial governments, and employers to protect the people who put food on our tables.

  • call on employers to continue to recognize the crucial contribution that frontline workers are making. The pandemic continues and so does the risk that frontline workers face every day.

We’re proud to serve our neighbours during this crisis, just as we were before it began. And we are grateful to all frontline workers who are putting their lives on the line every day to ensure we win this battle.
