Demand Justice For Lorene Parker--Stop Bank of America's Foreclosure of Her Home--and Show Solidarity With UE Union Workers Occupying Chicago Factory, Wednesday, December 10,

Lorene Parker of Detroit fell behind on her mortgage with Bank of America when she had large medical bills stemming from undergoing a heart and liver double transplant. She tried to contact Bank of America over a period of months to request relief on her mortgage because of her medical hardship. The bank's response? It is moving ahead with foreclosure proceedings and has scheduled a sheriff's sale of Ms. Parker's home on December 11.

We demand that the illegal Sheriff's Sale be stopped and that Bank of America immediately negotiate a loan modification with Lorene Parker.

Also, UE union workers at the Republic Doors and Windows factory in Chicago have been occupying the plant since Dec. 5. Management suddenly announced the factory would close without giving the workers the 60 day notice required under the WARN Act. It said workers would not get the severance pay and vacation pay they are owed because Bank of America backed out of its loan with the company.

We in Detroit celebrate that Bank of America has agreed to pay the Chicago UE workers and stop union busting!
