Republic Windows standoff

| | Comments (0) | Retweet

It's a slow retail news week, so let's make note of the factory employees of Republic Windows and Doors, who spent the weekend and Monday in their factory after the company announced a rapid facility shutdown last week.

Republic, which has been in business since 1965, gave its employees three days' notice that their jobs would be eliminated. In response the staff, which in unionized, began an impromptu sit-in to protest the short notice. The company says it has no credit with which to make severance and vacation payouts; the employees refuse to leave without getting what they are owed. Negotiations were to resume last night.
