Republic Window Sit-Down Strike Ends Successfully

Republicwindows_2 The amount of attention and publicity that the Republic Window Chicago sit-down strikers received seem to have led to a successful outcome to their dispute.

Yesterday evening, the workers, the company, and the Bank of America approved a $1.75 million agreement to end their six-day sit-in.

Although the workers still lost their jobs, they each receive eight weeks' salary, all accrued vacation pay and two months' paid health care, which works out to about $7,000 per employee.

Perhaps other employers will think twice before literally leaving their workers out in the cold when their financial fortunes go south.
