Enter the UFCW Co-op Solidarity Contest!

UFCW members who work at Co-op in Saskatoon are on strike, and SEIU-West stands behind them every step of the way.

Workers at Co-op are saying ‘NO!’ to two-tiered wages. Two-tiered wages are an unfair and divisive employer tactic that devalues newer employees to Co-op – it is completely out of the question pay a different wage to workers doing the exact same job – but that is what Co-op is trying to do. 

The Co-op has a long history in Saskatchewan – the people in our communities are part-owners of this organization and from that, we expect more. The Co-op Board of Directors should know better – they are meant to represent our communities who are looking for good, secure, and non-discriminatory jobs. We do not want to see new employees punished, and we do not want to see employers who exploit their staff every chance they get.

As a demonstration of our solidarity, SEIU-West is proud to launch our UFCW Co-op Solidarity Contest!
