More than 1,400 workers at Loblaw-owned Dominion stores across Newfoundland are on strike after the company refused to offer a living wage and to stop the overuse of part-time workers to avoid offering full-time jobs with benefits.
These frontline workers stepped up to serve their communities during the COVID-19 pandemic but Dominion continues to deny their employees full-time jobs and fair pay.
- In mid-June, Loblaw decided to end $2-per-hour pandemic pay for frontline workers, despite soaring profits during the COVID-19 outbreak.
- Last year Dominion cut 60 full-time positions at stores in Newfoundland while its parent company Loblaw raked in more than $1 billion in net profits.
- Today, more than 80% of the workers are part-time, with low pay and limited access to benefits, and have not received a pay raise since the spring of 2018.
- 75% of Dominion workers earn less than $15 an hour.
