URGENT: Factory will be liquidated in 1 day, please act now!!

Save Green Tech Jobs in Chicago!

Mesirow capital, the primary investory in Serious Energy who runs the factory being liquidated, has the power to save a vibrant factory in Chicago from the chopping block and still make good on it's investments. 

Serious Energy made a pledge to its workers when it announced it would be closing last February. The company said it would work to find a buyer for its Chicago factory in order to preserve good jobs. A buyer appeared in the form of New Era Windows, a cooperative created by workers from the former factory. On Monday, July 2nd, Serious told New Era Windows that instead of selling, it plans to liquidate the factory. The worker-run cooperative has the funds to buy the factory and create good green jobs in Chicago, but Serious Energy and Mesirow Financial are standing in the way.

Mesirow Financial is a major investor in Serious Energy and as a member of the Board of Directors, we ask that you tell Serious Energy: Save Good Green Jobs in Chicago.

 

Give to the support fund!

Letter to
Mesirow Financial: Thomas Galuhn, Board Member and Senior Managing Director
I just signed the following petition addressed to: Mesirow Financial - Thomas Galuhn, Board Member and Senior Managing Director. I am asking him to let New Era Windows buy the equipment from Serious Energy to start a worker coop and save Green Tech Jobs in Chicago!

Serious Energy made a pledge to its workers when it announced it would be closing last February. The company said it would work to find a buyer for its Chicago factory in order to preserve quality local jobs. A buyer appeared in the form of New Era Windows, a cooperative composed of former workers from the factory. On Monday, July 2nd, Serious told New Era Windows that instead of selling, it plans to liquidate the factory. The worker-run cooperative has the funds to buy the factory and create good green jobs in Chicago, but Serious Energy and Mesirow Financial are standing in the way.
