be patient, there is a good chance that you can draw unemployment for a few months and the plant will re-open with no union.

There's probably a better chance of them opening an indoor duck hunting club in that building.

If they re-open without a union, the place will be worse than it is now.

you poor, uninformed people just don't get it, i found this on the official quad website....

Quad/Graphics is a casual, friendly and challenging place to work where ingenuity is rewarded and diversity is embraced. Our employees work hard and have some fun at the same time. Are you ready to join us?

if you don't believe me click on this link....

Quit drinking the Kool-Aid and quit eating the popcorn. You will return to normal after you quit drinking the blue Kool-Aid and eating the company popcorn.

Cry baby---got paid for your work, didn't you? You stay and cry boo hoo while I go out and get a better job. It is business--Jonesboro sucked so it is being shut down. We should have done better--we didn't.

Jonesboro has been a great plant. It was doomed from the second Quad bought WC, as were all the other WC plants.

normally, when one company buys another company, the first thing the new owners do is replace most or all of the management with 'their' people.
anybody notice that quad didn't really replace anybody?
sure, they added a new bindery leader and made some suggestions, but overall they left everything up to the 'old boys club' which just moved people around to create the illusion that changes were being made.
surely even the quad-bots smelled that smelly smell when a person they deemed unqualified to head one department was suddenly assigned to head another completely different area.
then there are those whose titles and responsibilities were changed all too often, while their pay stayed the same.
quad probably never intended to keep the jonesboro plant alive any longer than necessary, but they did give it the chance to die its own slow death.

Am I allowed to comment on this thread Professor? How many cosmetic changes did they make? Painting, upping safety or adding rules & regulations? Or did they change any? Part of a juicy tax write off is to create the illusion as you speak of not to the employees, but to the IRS as well. Certain guidelines have to be met in order for it to be considered a "fail". A dollar amount had to be spent on improvements I imagine to call it a loss...fancy way of saying, "Cha ching" kickback. Happens all of the time. Not a folding company in this town hasn't attempted the same. I am sorry for your job losses.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if another printing company came in and bought the place and opened up quickly.
