Quad/Graphics nears end

Nov 11, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Buffalo News

The George Urban Boulevard location, which formerly operated as Worldcolor Buffalo and Quebecor World Buffalo, still has about 275 employees, said Claire Ho, a spokeswoman for Wisconsin-based Quad/Graphics. Quad/Graphics in April announced its plan to close the Depew plant late this year.

Sadly, money means more than ethics or community responsibility to Quad. I wish to send out my hope for better days for those who are losing their jobs. I feel eventually many more ppl will lose their jobs before this is all over. Those of us in Hazleton are questioning when the ax will fall,not if.

And you think Quad legacy employees are safe? It is just that arrogance that will be the downfall of the smurfs.

It's now just simple math. Think about it this way, if you owe $1.6 billion and don't make any money to pay it back you will go bankrupt.

Won't be long now

wont be long for us here at Buffalo a few more weeks and we will be out. Good luck to everyone out there who will be looking for a job. It will probably be better than working for this company I will miss my old company and co workers but will be glad to get out of this company to much like communism. They truly have no clue and its all about the money. Hey Joel just remember what goes around comes around and what you built yourself can be gone just as fast as it came.

Qw sucked they never were any good. When johnson and hardin got bought out by world color that was a good thing they made positive changes THEN the dumb F$%ks in canada decided to merge with world color becoming quebecorworld thats when the company started to suck to work for. Quad bought a shit hole of a company by the time quebecor had its way with it.When quebecorworld came out of bankruptcy and became world color again we were a shell of our former self. The company was mismanaged to the point of insolvency which sounds like the same direction quad is heading. You stop taking care of the people that take care of your company and it will become a shit hole just look at quebecor for your example!

Thank you, you are absolutely right.
I was actually a WC employee and then a QW employee and thats when I left. I seen it coming back then but unlike alot of others I wasnt afraid to take a chance and move for a job out of state. The funny thing is that the plant that I worked at was closed down a couple years afterwards. Thank God I didnt stick around for the Quad clowns.
A very good friend of mine still works for what is now Quad in Nashville and he couldnt be more miserable. Its basically him with a bunch of temps and not to mention the sweatshop atmosphere of Nashville. He is just hoping to get out before they close that plant also.
