Locked out Journal de Québec workers are telling their story to an international gathering of journalists Dec. 4.
The conference of the Uni Graphical, the international union representing journalists and printing trades people, is meeting in Lima Peru this week.
CUPE sent Denis Bolduc, spokesperson for the three locked out CUPE locals as well as Jocelyne Martineau, another locked-out worker, and Jean Chabot from TVA to the conference to share experiences about Québecor, a home-grown company that now behaves (badly) on the world stage as well.
“What I’ve heard about Quebecor from throughout the world is not at all reassuring,” Bolduc said. “What saddens me most is that there’s the word “Quebec” in Quebecor and that’s affecting Québec’s international reputation.”
