Quad Grapics SUCKS as a family orientated company. They threw me and over 100 employees out of work in Stevensville Canada with NO severance pay lawfully due to us under Canadian law. Now they bring in Professional "GOONS" (picket breakers) to break up our peaceful INDIVIUAL protest for our money. So much for a "family orientated" company. Grow a set and pay us our LEGALLY due money. DON'T RUN AWAY LIKE YOU'RE TRYING TO DO!!!!!

Quad Graphics bought Vertis Communications in a prearranged Brankruptcy agreement through the American Courts. Then hid behind Chapter 11 clause. They shut down the Stevensville Ontario plant and moved all the work to an American Quad Graphics plant and then refused to pay the Canadian workers their Termination Pay and their Severence Pay, saying it was because Vertis Communications was in Bankruptcy. How can one of the alleged best employers in America treat workers this way? Is it because we are Canadian? No matter what side of the border we live on, we all deserve to be treated with respect. Quad's idea of treating people with respect is bringing in a bunch of goon security guards so they can strip the Canadian plant of all good equipment, transfer it to Quad plants in th U.S. and then make sure they don't pay the Canadian workers what the deserve, and cut off their benefits early too! Sounds like a great company to work for!

You should be talking about your Vertis bosses, not a company that doesn't even own the plant.

Quad bought the equipment in that plant
Vertis is your employer you have the beef with.
Give up the picket and start looking for new work
I wish you all good luck but you are picketing a company that goesnt exist and never cared about you

Ink Man and Ink spot you must be "NEWLY" acquired Quad Employees. Quad Graphics did buy the assets of Stevensville. Quad Graphics DID run the presses AFTER the sale closing date. That makes all former Vertis employees in Stevensville Quad Employees. Because Pet Value wasn't off the presses after the sale date Quad decided to finish the run. HELLOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! Quad ran the presses Quad OWES us severance!!!!!! Oh and SOON Quad wont care about you either!!!!
