DoveCorp Enterprises Inc.: Results of Representation Vote Determined by OLRB

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 10, 2007) - As a result of an agreement between DoveCorp (TSX VENTURE:DOV) and the UFCW to resolve the issues in dispute relating to the UFCW's application for certification, the Ontario Labour Relations Board conducted on July 10, 2007 a count of the ballots cast in the representation vote.

The Board determined that a majority of the ballots cast in the vote were in favour of the union. This satisfies the requirement in the Labour Relations Act, 1995 for the union to represent the employees of DoveCorp that were subject to the application for certification.

We therefore expect that the Board will soon issue a certificate to the Union which designates it as the exclusive bargaining agent for all of DoveCorp's production employees at 35 Suntract Road, Toronto.

The issues relating to the dismissal of employees, as set out in the Union's unfair labour practice complaint, remain outstanding. The hearing is this matter is currently scheduled to commence on July 16, 2007.
