Bobbi Bockoras works at Saint-Gobain Containers' glass factory in Port Allegany. She says that when she requested a place to pump, the company directed her to unsanitary rooms, allowed coworkers to harass her and retaliated against her when she complained.
 
The company, which does business as Verallia North America, declined comment on the allegations but says it's "committed to providing a respectful workplace."
 
Bockoras filed a federal lawsuit and a complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. She's represented by the American Civil Liberties Union.
 
Bockoras said Thursday in a news release "I never thought that I would be punished on the job for doing what I feel is best for my baby."
