QUEBECOR FACES MORE CHARGES

The National Labor Relations Board is making additional charges of labor law violations against Quebecor World, a Montreal, Quebec-based printing company that has been accused of using union-busting tactics.

Quebecor says it is being unfairly targeted by national labor unions that are trying to force the company to sign agreements that would take away its rights in labor organization cases.

The NLRB said Monday that it has added five new labor law violations to 22 counts coming out of the company's Covington, Tenn., and Corinth, Miss., plants.

The charges accuse Quebecor of illegally firing employees for union activity, stopping others from legal union activity, intimidating others and spying on the unionization process. The case is scheduled for a Dec. 13 trial in Memphis.

The company operates a plant in Depew, N.Y.
