According to Truthout, Armando Robles, president of the United Electrical Workers Local 1110 said, “We learned how to fight against the bosses and now to negotiate contracts with the owners of Republic and Serious Energy, how to negotiate in contract negotiations and how to make escalating actions before going on strike.”
According to a press release, the group founded New Era Windows, LLC and is looking to raise money and find investments to purchase machinery from their former employer.
