The employees who took over an Illinois window manufacturing plant last year after the owner announced he would shut it down—and who became national cult heroes as a result—have filed an unfair labor practices charge against their former employer and the owner.

The sitters-in, whose plight drew international media coverage in the run-up to the presidential election, charge that Richard Gillman shut down Republic Windows and Doors without first notifying them or negotiating with them.

They charge that Gillman’s family formed a new company, bought a window factory in Iowa and transferred the business there.
