"No way banks can unionize. Never have done so, never will". ...Unless the future is different than the past.
Many Illinois employees are so fed up that unionization is not a bad idea anymore. Unionization may protect the jobs at 333 S Wabash...or cause them to go offshore faster?

CWA is promoting bank unionization.

The Communications Workers of America (CWA) is initiating a campaign to help finance industry workers gain a voice in the workplace. The financial sector is the least unionized despite having the largest footprint on the economy. Despite being heavily unionized everywhere else in the world, bank workers have few rights in the U.S.

The importance of this campaign extends beyond improving, or maintaining, conditions for individual workers however. CWA believes that many of the abuses of the financial industry which caused the 2008 crash, including unethical actions and predatory lending could in fact have been prevented if workers had the protection to speak with an independent voice and whistleblower protections.
