Workers to Talk About Factory Occupation This Tuesday

October 25, 2009

Several members of UE Local 1110 in Chicago will be in grand Rapids this Tuesday to speak about their historic factory occupation from last December.

Hasta La Victoria

260 workers occupied the factory of Republic Windows and Doors where it was announced that they would not only lose their jobs, but their severance pay as well. The workers defied the law and convention union practice and thought that an occupation of the factory was their only recourse. After nearly a week-long occupation, the company was forced to concede.

Members of the Republic Windows and Doors will share their story and show a documentary about the occupation at an event that is FREE and open to the public.
