Dollarama Inc. workers in Montreal are demanding higher pay and better working conditions after the retailer ended its temporary coronavirus pay boost earlier this month — a bonus program several retailers implemented to account for unprecedented working conditions during the pandemic. Employees at Dollarama stores received a 10 per cent wage increase at the end of March while warehouse workers saw a $3 raise, resulting in hourly pay of between $14.40 and $16.10. The company stopped the pay premiums on Aug. 2 after extending them for a month and a half beyond the initially anticipated end date.
