Where's Daley, you ask?

Cutting the cake, of course

JP Morgan Chase, whose subsidiary owns 40 percent of Republic Windows and Doors, on Wednesday morning pledged $400,000 in capital to be used for the benefit of the plant's workers, according to U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., who is involved in negotiating with Republic workers who are in the fifth day of a sit-in protesting lack of notification and pay after Republic shut down Dec. 5.

Also, Chase Midwest Chairman William M. Daley, brother of Mayor Richard Daley, has joined the negotiations to resolve the protest, Gutierrez said in a statement issued Wednesday morning.
