Resolution Demanding the Protection of Human Rights at Dollarama: Press Conference Faced with the Resolution Submitted by the BCGEU to the Dollarama Shareholders’ Annual General Meeting

Montreal, June 8, 2021. – To the Dollarama shareholders’ annual general meeting, scheduled for June 9th, a resolution has been submitted by the British Columbia Government and Service Employees’ Union (BCGEU). The resolution stresses the need to insure the human rights of workers and requests that “Dollarama prepare a report outlining how it assesses and mitigates the human rights risks arising out of its use of third-party staffing agencies for its warehouse and distribution centre staffing needs.”

A day before the vote on the resolution, the Immigrant Workers Centre (IWC) and the Temporary Agency Workers Association (TAWA) hold an online press conference with five spokespersons: Emma Pullman (Capital Stewardship Officer of the BCGEU), Victoria Coon (Internal affairs officer for the Association of McGill University Support Employees) and three former workers of Dollarama, Jean-Pierre Maweja (TAWA), Gabriel Dufour (TAWA) and Gaurav Sharma (IWC).
