R.R. Donnelley: Flaxby Facility Expands Shifts, Increases Workforce

Press release from the issuing company

FLAXBY, ENGLAND, -- R.R. Donnelley will soon hire 30 new workers and establish a seven-day work week to meet customers' growing needs at its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Flaxby, England. These positions will add two new shifts to reduce cycle-time and meet increased customer demand. This agreement follows negotiations between Flaxby management and the Graphical Paper and Media Union (GPMU), which represented employees. The GPMU agreed that there is a need to support the long-term future of the operation with appropriate compensation for unsociable hours. "Instead of asking our staff to work longer hours, we developed a solution that creates more flexibility and more jobs. With this expansion we will exceed our customers needs and keep work/life balance a priority for our employees," said Roy Houston, vice president and division director, R.R. Donnelley. When the company moved its York operations to its world-class facility in Flaxby in April 2001, volume increased creating the need to accommodate growing customer demand. As a result of the new seven-day working week, the company expects improved response rates and reduced cycle-time for existing and potential customers.
