Former Vertis Workers Continue Labour Dispute
The Niagara Falls Review, a community-focused news outlet of Sun Media, reported on Thursday, March 7, that lawyers representing Quad/Graphics Inc. and the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers (CEP) Union of Canada met in court over an ongoing labour dispute between the two sides.
In January 2013, around 100 workers within the CEP union at a Stevensville, Ontario, printing plant operated by Vertis were laid off when Quad/Graphics finalized its asset purchase Vertis. Based in Wisconsin, Quad/Graphics first signed an agreement to purchase the assets of Vertis Holdings for US$258.5 million in October 2012, shortly after Vertis filed for bankruptcy protection in the United States.
The laid-off workers have picketing out front of Quad/Graphics’ new Stevensville location, which led to last Thursday’s court appearance in St. Catharines, as the company felt its trucks were being unduly held up.
Tony Ricciuto of the Niagara Falls Review reports the workers feel they are owed upwards of $2.7 million and that further court action is expected.
