KM Secures Settlement for Employees in Respect of Severance Entitlements Arising from Bankruptcies of Quality Meat Packers Limited and Toronto Abattoirs Limited
January 23, 2021
We are pleased to announce that a settlement has been reached on behalf of the United Food and Commercial Workers Locals 175 and 633, their members, and certain other salaried employees in respect of severance entitlements arising from the bankruptcies of Quality Meat Packers Limited (QMP) and Toronto Abattoirs Limited (TAL). This settlement, reached on the eve of a scheduled 6-day hearing before the Ontario Labour Relations Board, has been made on the basis that none of the allegations against the responding parties have been proven.
This settlement will allow all Union employees and certain salaried employees who lost their jobs when QMP and TAL became bankrupt in 2014 to benefit from a payment toward their unpaid severance pay.
