For Immediate Release

I would like to express my support for the Covington, Tennessee workers employed by Quebecor World, Inc., a Canadian-based printing multinational corporation. These workers are attempting to form a union in their workplace but have been met by resistance from the management of Quebecor.

I have always believed that one of the best ways to raise people out of poverty is to give them the real freedom to form a union, free of management interference and intimidation. That is why I have strongly supported the Employee Free Choice Act. This legislation ensures that when a majority of employees in a workplace decide to form a union, they can do so without the debilitating obstacles employers now use to block workers' free choice.

I urge Quebecor to remain neutral when it comes to its employees' choice to form a union.
