I havn't heard anything about the Versailes Kentucky plant , has anybody else ? It is very slow there but I'm still working these damn 12 hour night shifts. Not too many machines are running any more but all the lights are constantly on! They would not be broke if half of the unused lights were turned off! The factory is way too big and a lot of space is just being wasted. JUST CLOSE THE PLANT AND SEND ME BACK TOO SCHOOL SO I CAN GET A REAL JOB WORKING M-F DURING THE DAY SO I AM HOME WITH MY FAMILY AT NIGHT AND ON THE WEEKENDS!!! I AM SO TIRED OF WORKING AT NIGHT!!!!!!!
I got let go from the plant back in January. I bet no one heard about that one. Not sure if the plant will close or not.

I got let go from the plant back in January 18th. I bet no one heard about that one. Me and four others got the pink slip. Sorry not info if the plant will close or not. The one thing the plant has going for it, it does make its yearly sales goal.

Has any plants laid off any salaried employees yet ?
You can bet that wonder boy Wes Lucas got his money, just like he got it at Sun Chemical another company he finished off and destroyed and was fired from. Has absolutely no idea of this industry and gets hired to be at the top and surrounds himself with friends, relatives and cronies from his many past jobs (says he has a degree from Harvard, question is what else does he have, like common sense???).
They left all his people at Sun Chemical after he got fired. Incredibly Quebecor picks him up and gives him the title CEO for all of those months and months while Quebecor and shareholder equity continued to deteriorate under his watch, a myopic and purely ceremonial watch. If you ask about Sun Chemical you will find another company that has lost all its morale and its best professional employees whose place has been taken by Lucas' people that he brought in and are still there, today.

I can say at the Corinth plant some employees have been laid off for three months now! Some salaried were given the axe about a week ago. Only three presses running out of six.

I don't know about other plants, but Lebanon is doing lay offs. I just got laid off after nearly 10 years. Good luck to you all.

Canadians dont care about peoples lives only their pokets. P K has all the money in a special room & is having a good time. He drained everything & everyone. He has the profits ! North East Graphics was one of the top printers in the east coast , and Q W killed them.

All Canadians are not like PK just like all Americans are not like George W. I know most are honest, smart and work hard. I fell for all affected by these clowns.

I was with Northeast from the begining-got cut loose by WC after 6 hard years as the pressroom manager. I saw the end back in 1996. I even told the people that worked with me "Some of you think I am hard - wait there are far worse ". I agree Northeast was a showplace and now it is nothing. I hope everything works out well for those of you who are loosing your jobs.
Good Luck

This will be the best thing for us at Northeast ,
We will move on with our lives , get new jobs, work for an "American Company" not deal with people who could give a Sh!@ about us.

We will just take out experience and move on.

We were alway had some work in our department. The press ran 24/7. The same week I was layed off they cut the cover press down to 3 or 4 days a week. My department 8 were layed off or retired. Not sure about the numbers in other areas. I do know seniority had nothing to do with it. There were several people with less seniority than me that all got to keep their jobs. I think they were getting rid of the people that weren't afraid to voice their opinions. They claimed they went by reviews and attendance. I always had very good reviews and only had around 4 occurances (1 ready to drop off) I was actually very shock that I was one of the first in my department to go. I was due for a review early april and increase. A year ago I was even promoted. So I had no clue I would be one to go. Hope this helps. So expect any thing!
