Resistance and Recovery: The Republic Windows Workers Tour

UE Local 1110 members — the workers who occupied Chicago’s Republic Windows and Doors Plant in December and won — are visiting with, and being hosted by, labor and community groups from Michigan to Vermont during the next several weeks.

Join Jobs with Justice, UE, and other groups in celebrating the successful resistance at Republic and launch the broader campaign for an economic recovery that puts Main Street Before Wall Street!
