Dec. 10: Demonstrate: Support Chicago workers taking over their plant

Support Chicago workers taking over their plant

Jobs at a Living Wage are a Right

Wednesday, Dec. 10, 12 Noon
Bank of America, 261 Broadway
(subway - R or W train to City Hall; 1, 2, 3, A or C to Chambers Street; or 6 train to Brooklyn Bridge)

Over 250 heroic workers—overwhelmingly immigrants—at the Republic Windows & Doors factory in Chicago are fighting back! These members of Local 1110 of the United Electrical, Radio and MachineWorkers of America (UE) have taken over their plant until they get their jobs back.

Their workplace was suddenly shutdown when Bank of America withdrew a line of credit. No 60 days notice was given to these workers, as required by the WARN (Worker Adjustment Retraining and Notification) Act. Their vacation pay was stolen, too.

George Bush gave $25 billion of our money to his pals at the Bank of America. This financial octopus already has over $1.7 trillion in assets. With all this dough, they go ahead and steal the jobs of these Chicago workers.

Join the fight back against layoffs, foreclosures, racism, immigrant bashing, tuition and subway fare hikes!

Sponsored by Bail Out the People Movement and the May 1st Coalition for Worker and Immigrant Rights. (212) 633-6646;

(Another important action: Support the Stella D’ Oro workers, who've been on strike for four months. Come to the picket line on Wednesday, Dec. 10 from 3 to 6 pm at 237th St. and Broadway. Take the 1 train to 238th St.)
