Call center workers protest in Trois Rivieres after a US-company closes its Canadian operations

A protest was held Saturday in Trois-Rivieres by workers who’ve just lost their jobs after a US-based company decided, without notice, to shutdown its Canadian operations.

About 600 I-Q-T call center workers in Trois-Rivieres and Laval are out on the street.

Roughly the same amount received pink slips in Oshawa, Ontario.

The workers say they’ll fight for money they’re owed.

Union officials say they plan to take legal action, arguing the company, for one, failed to provide two weeks’ notice before closing.
