Woman Files Suit Over Pumping Breast Milk

A Smethport woman has filed a federal lawsuit against the Port Allegany glass factory, saying she faced discrimination over needing to pump breast milk during work hours.

Bobbi Bockoras works at Saint-Gobain Containers, and says when she asked for a place to pump she was told to go to a room that was unsanitary, and her bosses allowed co-workers to harass her, and retaliated against her when she complained.

Bockoras, who is represented by the American Civil Liberties Union, said in a news release that she never thought she would be punished on the job for doing what she feels is best for her baby.

The company declined to comment.
