Got this from a sister still in:
Announcement at Bethel This Morning 5/27/09
Re: Magazine Printing and Shipping relocated to Canada. Governing Body has approved of having the Magazine Printing and
Shipping moved to the Canada Branch. They will be getting a new Press and equipment to accomplish this task. Here at Wallkill and the Global Printery’s are going to Double Shift
work. (No brothers or sister working with the new “work arrangement”
will have to miss meetings) Wallkill presently has 5 printing presses and we will be reduced to 3
high speed. We will continue to Print and Ship all Hard and Soft cover
publications. All the details have not been worked out, but many will
be effected who were presently working with Magazine
Production/Printing & Shipping. The Society transferred the magazine Dept. from Brooklyn to Wallkill
in 1973..and has rolled off the presses Billions of issues…time to
pass the baton on to our Brothers to the North.
Thrilling news !!
Now, regarding the opening comment "the Governing Body has approved of having the Magazine Printing and Shipping moved to the Canada Branch"; I was of the impression that the whole legal organization re-org was designed to alleviate the Governing Body from having to be burdened with operational decisions of the corporation, and could focus on spiritual food production (sic). Wouldn't approving such a move be the domain of the directors of those corporations directly responsible for printing operations?
