Save The 'Montreal' Gazette Newspaper sign now

Montreal Gazette employees are fighting to preserve a vibrant English-language daily newspaper produced in Montreal to serve Montrealers.

The Gazettes owners, Winnipeg-based Canwest Inc., are moving more and more of The Gazettes editorial and customer-service operations out of the province of Quebec in violation of the employees collective agreements. Now, in contract negotiations, Canwest is demanding the removal of impediments to outsource any remaining work outside of Quebec in order to facilitate lay offs in Montreal.

These moves threaten to diminish Canadas diversity of voices, whittle down local input and stifle The Gazettes vital role of covering local news and reflecting Montrealers values, concerns and culture. The Gazette has been a proud Montreal institution since 1778 and its readers deserve better than Canwests plans to further downsize, centralize and outsource to maximize profits.

The newspaper is operated by Canwest, however it is the public that will ultimately decide whether it will tolerate a local newspaper produced elsewhere. Gazette staff are appealing to the Montreal community to tell Canwest to keep the Montreal in the Montreal Gazette.

SAUVEZ LASPECT MONTRЙAL DE LA GAZETTE

Les employйs de la Montreal Gazette luttent pour prйserver un quotidien de langue anglaise dynamique, produit а Montrйal pour servir les Montrйalaises et les Montrйalais.

Le propriйtaire de la Gazette, lentreprise Canwest Inc. basйe а Winnipeg, dйplace de plus en plus dopйrations de rйdaction et de services а la clientиle а lextйrieur du Quйbec, en contravention avec les conventions collectives des employйs. Et maintenant, au cours des nйgociations en vue de renouveler les conventions collectives, Canwest exige de retirer les clauses qui lempкchent dexporter le travail qui reste а lextйrieur du Quйbec, de faзon а faciliter des mises а pied а Montrйal.

Ces manuvres menacent de diminuer la diversitй des voix au Canada, de rйduire la participation locale et de mettre en veilleuse le rфle vital de la Gazette pour communiquer les nouvelles locales et reflйter les valeurs, les enjeux et la culture des Montrйalais. La Gazette est depuis 1778 une fiиre institution de Montrйal, et ses lecteurs mйritent mieux que les projets de Canwest en vue de la rйduire, de la centraliser et den impartir les services afin de maximiser ses profits.

Bien que la Gazette soit gйrйe par Canwest, cest le public qui va dйcider sil est disposй а tolйrer un quotidien local produit ailleurs. Les employйs de la Gazette font appel а la collectivitй de Montrйal pour dire а Canwest de conserver lexpression Montrйal dans Montreal Gazette.
