Quebecor is the largest commercial printing company in the world. It is
the printer of Time Magazine, Parade Magazine, and many publications
that millions of people read every day. It is also a company that is
reducing overtime pay, dramatically increasing workloads and reducing
staffing. When workers try to form unions to gain better conditions,
Quebecor threatens them with job losses and plant closures. Quebecor
workers from 17 countries have formed a coalition demanding that the
company adhere to core labor standards defined by the International
Labor Organization and respect for U.S. workers' right to form a union.
While this international support is important, support from the
community is crucial.
Come let Quebecor know that they must respect workers rights!
