Solidarity Committee

UMFA has established a Solidarity Committee to support other labour and union activities in Manitoba and across Canada. 

Members of the committee are required to commit to attending at least one event per year.

Committee activities involve:

  • organizing goodwill gestures such as providing cookies or coffee at events
  • being part of the larger labour movement across Manitoba and Canada
