CAMBRIDGE, Ontario — Clutching handwritten signs reading “Betrayed” and “Save our company,” laid-off Erwin Hymer Group North America employees gathered outside the closed Cambridge plant Tuesday morning, The Record reported.
Hundreds lost their jobs Friday as the recreational vehicle maker, formerly Roadtrek Motorhomes, went into receivership after an internal audit revealed “financial irregularities” and exaggeration or mischaracterization of profitability.
“We, the Roadtrek family, need your help; we need action to rebuild what is a viable and successful product that we believe in with our hearts, and souls,” said Patrick Mullin, reading a prepared statement to the crowd of about 200.
RV Daily Report learned that police were called to the location for what was characterized as a “landlord-tenant dispute.” It is unknown if anyone was arrested at the rally.
