November 24, 2023


Negotiations are ongoing for Members of UFCW Local 175 at Great Food Stores (GFS) and Real Canadian (RCSS) at 61 stores across Ontario.

Your Union Negotiating Committee met on November 8,9, 21, 22, 23 & 24, 2023, to continue reviewing proposals and solidarity bargaining with UFCW 1006A.

The goal of your Union Negotiating Committee is to achieve the best possible collective agreements for our 12,800 members at GFS and RCSS stores.

Your Union Negotiating Committee will continue to review the company’s proposals and responses. The next set of negotiation dates are set for November 27 – 29, 2023.

Who is on your Union Negotiating Committee?

The rank-and-file UFCW Local 175 members on your Union Negotiating Committee were elected from a group of more than 100 members on the Master Committee who attended a first meeting on September 26, 2023. Those 100 members were originally elected at your proposal meetings earlier in the year.

Your Union Negotiating Committee has 11 members including current Executive Board Members who work at Great Food Stores, plus experienced Union negotiators and Union staff.


Throughout the bargaining process, solidarity and support for your Committee is vital to achieving a good collective agreement. Thank you for your participation and engagement throughout this process.

If you have any questions or concerns about negotiations, please reach out to your Union Representative.

Your next Bargaining Update will follow the negotiations scheduled from November 27 – 29.

In Solidarity,

Your UFCW Local 175 GFS & RCSS Union Negotiating Committee
