Las Vegas, Nevada – April 23, 2018 – More than 2,500 UFCW activists from across North America, including 400 UFCW Canada delegates and activists, joined in unity for the opening day of the UFCW 8th Regular Convention in Las Vegas.
The UFCW Canada delegates from Local Unions throughout Canada make up the largest single caucus at the once-every-five-years Regular Convention. The delegates at this year’s convention have gathered to lay out a vision of the future for North America’s most progressive union, built on the core values of Unity, Family, Community, and Worth.
Each day is dedicated to one of the values. “Unity” was the theme of Day One, as the convention was called to order. The value of Unity stems from the strong belief that no one should have to struggle alone, and that when the 1.3 million members of UFCW stand together, we have the power to create a better and more just workplace.
Throughout the convention, UFCW Canada digital campaigns, quizzes, and videos will be featured at a UFCW Canada display area in the convention’s Unity Hall. UFCW Canada activists will also be presenting at a number of education workshops throughout the week.
