Billy,
Can you post a copy of the announcement of Dyersburg's closing. Some of us have not seen it yet.
This was posted on the intranet (IQ) web site today, backdated to Friday.

Operational Announcement Wordcolor - 3/19/10 - 3:08:00 PM

Employees at our Dyersburg, TN facility have been informed that the plant will be closing in a phased process, with operations scheduled to end in the first half of 2011.

Transition plans involving sales, co-mail and operations are underway to support all customers impacted by this decision.

It's more accurate for me to say that I didn't SEE that post until today. So it may have been posted some time before today, but I promise you that it wasn't there any time before 4:30 last Friday, which was the last time I checked the web site before today.

Look for more plant closings next month. Quad will take the more profitable accounts and move into their existing plants and the loser accounts will be spread between Jonesboro and Clarksville. If I were a betting man the plant decisions were made months ago and they are just waiting till things slow down this spring and have the work moved by the summer. I talked to a couple of Dyersburg customers out on the West Coast and they haven't been informed where their work would be going this morning.

Any word on the fernley location closing? They put up a big red sign shutting us down for today (*Tuesday, March 23) and no word as to why. Not that the union is doing anything to cover our asses, it can stay or go at this point. But where is hidden agenda here? Are we closing? Any word as to which US plants will close?

You haven't seen anything yet. Next you will be losing your benefits when you are let go. Sure you will be employed back at Quad. But as a temp with no benefits ..no vacations..no holiday pay..and if you don't go back as a temp you will lose your un employment. Better get the union Started before this happens

Wow really don't know how to respond to this...really LMAO every thought of applying for a supervision position at Merced World Color/ Quad Graphics the way to convey your message is totally comprehensible making you a top candidate for a supervision role
