Borden-Cartlton Plant P.E.I.
Transcontinental has let almost half the full time staff from it's Borden-Carlton in Prince Edward Island plant go. Transcontinental had sold all publication in Atlantic Canada. The P.E.I. plant was still printing some of the publications, The Guardian and the Journal Pioneer. The owners of these two publication recently decided to move the printing of these publication in-house to their plant in Halifax.
The Transcontinental staff was  offered positions at other plants off the island. None of the employees wanted to re-locate. Transcontinental has sold off almost all of it's publications and were possible keeping the printing. When they loose the printing they are cutting back. Transcontinental has repositioned the company as a packaging printer with now more than half their revenue coming from packaging.
