But before responding to the company`s offer, we would like your entry. Transcontinental has closed 20 sites across Canada over the past 15 years. The Winnipeg plant is expected to be closed by 2021, although workers will be laid off by then if the workload decreases. On June 15, 2020, the Winnipeg Sun released its last printed copy of the Monday edition of the newspaper. Unifor is proud of its members during this period and will continue to work tirelessly to save local news. Unifor is Canada`s largest private sector union and represents 315,000 workers in all major sectors of the economy. The union defends all workers and their rights, fights for equality and social justice in Canada and abroad, and aspires to progressive change for a better future. “Two years ago, transcontinental committed to producing at least five years in Winnipeg, with the possibility of increasing to 10 years. This not only betrays workers, it will also effectively kill the large-scale pressure in the province of Manitoba,” said Gavin McGarrigle, Regional Director of Unifor Western.
