From Republic Windows and Doors to Warehouse Workers for Justice
- Defending our rights at work
- Winning justice in our industry
- Turning warehouse jobs into good jobs
- Building support for the struggles of warehouse workers
Warehouse Workers for Justice is a new organization founded to win justice for warehouse and logistics workers in Illinois. We are an independent workers center founded by the United Electrical Workers (UE) after the successful plant occupation at Republic Windows and Doors in December, 2008. We provide workshops so warehouse workers can educate themselves about workplace rights, unite warehouse workers to defend their rights on the job, build community support for the struggles of warehouse workers and fight for policy changes to improve the lives of warehouse workers and members of our communities. Our fiscal sponsor is the UE Research and Education Fund.
