Republic Talks Continue in Chicago - 6:25 p.m. CST
08 December, 2008
CHICAGO - 6:25 p.m. Tuesday

Negotiations that began today at 1:00 p.m. between the UE bargaining
committee, Republic Windows and Bank of America are still in progress.
 No settlement has been reached.

Yesterday, Bank of America issued a statement that it was willing to
provide a "limited amount" of additional loans to Republic Windows and
Doors to help resolve the plant occupation.

Late this afternoon some news organizations published stories, based
on the bank's statement yesterday, that were factually incorrect. Bank
of America informed us their statement from yesterday was released in
error.
Democratic Vote

When the meeting concludes, the UE committee will return to the
factory and report on any progress. Because UE is a democratic
organization, only the 200 plus workers currently occupying Republic
Windows and Doors will decide if a settlement is acceptable by a
democratic vote.
Chicago Rally

Meanwhile, tomorrow's Chicago rally will proceed as planned.
