INKSTOPPED

Posted By on Tue, Oct 27, 2009 at 4:47 PM

In this economy, it’s the sort of news that sends chills up your spine: A few weeks ago, employees of the Cleveland-based office-supply outlet InkStop learned that management was closing all 152 stores effective immediately, leaving them their last two weeks’ pay. To add insult to injury, the company had — unbeknownst to employees — stopped paying health-care premiums, making them ineligible for COBRA coverage.

In support of the jettisoned workers, the Jobs With Justice coalition will be staging an awareness-raising rally at 11 a.m. Wednesday, October 28, at the park in front of the plaza at 14871 Detroit Rd. in Lakewood, where an InkStop store was located. The event will featuring speakers — including former InkStop employees, social-justice activists and Lakewood city council member Nickie Antonio — as well as street theater. — Anastasia Pantsios
