¡Si Se Pudo!

Republic Windows and Doors occupation of their factory forced the bosses and the banks to pay the workers what they were owed. UE Local 1110 union workers and the worldwide solidarity they go became the shining example that bold mass actions win justice. In 2013 some of the same workers opened New Era Windows which worker owned, run democratically, and specializes in energy efficient products.

This CPH poster printed at the worker-owned and union-run Community Printers, Santa Cruz, CA.

This is #190 in the Celebrate People’s History Poster Series.
