Boycott Loblaws, Shoppers Drug Mart & No Frills until they commit to paying a living wage!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


Galen Weston Jr CEO and President as well as a major shareholder of Loblaw companies which include Loblaws, Shoppers Drug Mart, No Frills, Superstore, Fortinos, Zehrs & Provigo, is worth $9.5 billion but he doesn't want to even take the small first step of committing his company to a feasibility study to see whether paying a living wage is possible. I repeat not even a feasibility study to see whether paying a living wage is practical!!!

In other news Loblaw companies announced that their 4th Quarter profits in 2016 were up a staggering 57% over last year, and even though their bread price fixing scheme through which they profited handsomely at the expense of consumers for decades, and which seemingly obliged them to hand out $25 gift cards to some customers as an apology of sorts or more cynically as an attempt at damage control, they still managed to net a $150 million increase in 2017 4th quarter gross profits. All of which means that the Loblaw companies are doing really well, and remember that they complained loudly just last July about paying folks the mandated minimum wage increases! See links below.

Tell Loblaw companies, Galen Weston Jr. and Loblaw directors & shareholders that we won't buy their products and services until they at least commit themselves to a feasibility study to see whether paying a living wage is possible in practice! Now, this is a small first step on their part in the right direction.

Lastly, if we want to change the way Loblaws and other large corporations operate, there is no better way of making your voice heard through your support for this action!
