Portraits of a Movement: Immigrant Workers Continue the Fight Against Unjust Dismissal

Montreal, October 8, 2008 – More than 60 former workers at a Montreal textile factory, Lamour Inc., are involved in a campaign for just compensation. Although the workers have been laid off in small groups, collectively, they believe these lay-offs should be considered collective and therefore they should be eligible for a substantial termination package. Many of them have been working for this company for more than 10 years, with some having more than 20 years of service. During this time, L’Amour Inc has become a very profitable company for its owners. L’Amour boasts that it is a leading company in the apparel industry and has operations in places like China, Pakistan, Bangladesh and India with over 2500 workers worldwide. A long-time partner of the retail giant Walmart, it recently broke into the US market in July, 2007, by taking over Terramar Sports, a company based in Tarrytown, New York, USA.
