The union claims the  plant's workers have endured year after year of cuts to pay, hours, vacation and benefits — including wage cuts  since the COVID-19 pandemic started. The Union claims “ Postmedia has been paying millions a year to its top executives and tens of millions to its hedge fund owners / lenders".  Postmedia sold the printing plant on Islington Avenue for $30 million and  arranged to lease a portion of the property for up to 10 years. The company  used the net proceeds to pay down debt.
