Laid Off Workers Refuse to Leave Chicago Plant

Hoy, Posted: Dec 09, 2008

The company Republic Windows and Doors laid off the employees Dec. 2 after Bank of America canceled the company's credit line. Union representatives and Bank of America have agreed to meet to negotiate the employees' claims, which call for payment of salary, compensation, benefits and vacation time.
