Just a quick follow-up to all my coverage in December to the factory sit-in in Chicago by UE Local 1110- Republic Windows and Doors has been purchased in bankruptcy court by a California-based company that has announced they will re-hire everyone who lost their jobs when Republic Windows and Doors was shut-down.  The purchase of RW&D by Serious Materials also included negotiations with the UE, resulting in the company’s pledge to re-hire all of the former RW&D staff and to recognize the UE as representing the worker’s.  “Our members are ready to get back to work and make great energy efficient green windows for Serious.  We look forward to working together to create green jobs at living wages,” said Armando Robles, President of UE Local 1110.  Congratulations out there folks, nice work.
