Former Vertis workers protest peacefully in Niagara Falls
Between 50 and 60 former employees of Vertis Communications showed up for an early morning protest in front of the Cairn Croft hotel on Lundy's Lane.
The peaceful gathering was meant to get the attention of Niagara Falls MP Rob Nicholson who was hosting a March fundraising breakfast.
Workers claim the Justice Minister has refused to respond to requests for a meeting to discuss their situation with their former employer.
The company let go of workers and went bellly up in the U.S, but has yet to pay any severance owed to Canadian workers.
The crowd arrived at eight o'clock in the morning and did have a chance to speak to Nicholson.
Former employee Jim Callum says they confronted the minister before he went in for the breakfast and mentioned the group should get a lawyer.
Callum says they just want what is owed to them.
He says the company has not declared bankruptcy in Canada, which leads them to believe they are showing a profit on their books.
