Important UPS Update

UFCW Local 401 is vigorously fighting for your rights through successor ship and we will continue to represent you and fight on your behalf. We will be filling complaints of unjust terminations with the Alberta Labour Relations Board on behalf of some UPS guards who were terminated for exercising their rights to choose a “real” Union and the Union you all chose freely.

Despite what the company is alleging “YOU ARE UNIONIZED!!”

Clearly the company does not want you to have a “real” union. The company knows what UFCW Local 401 has done for you so far and our reputation for fighting for workers is well known across Canada. This is why they are using tactics like stalling, failing to meet within the 30 days for negotiations, introducing “temporary” unions and attempting to intimidate you at work through their management.  They continue to underestimate you as workers BUT we don’t!! We know you are strong and you are not naïve, you see what is really going on.

Since our last update, we would like to inform you that "Specialty and Temporary Employees Union (STEU)," is no longer a threat and they will not be applying at the Alberta Labour Relations Board for a vote. But should you be approached by a representative from STEU please contact us immediately so that we can deal with it promptly. Keep watching your email, our website www.thesecurityguardunion.ca and your Facebook page www.facebook.com/877gounion for more information as this situation develops; and if you have any question please do not hesitate to call. 

In solidarity,
