CNN: Citing bailout, union wants to organize bank workers
December 16, 2008
The Service Employees International Union, currently in the news due to its reported involvement in the Governor Blagojevich scandal, is according to a CNN report, intent on organizing bank workers in the wake of the $700 billion financial-system bailout. The Union contends that its tact is a result of the industry being infused with billions of taxpayer dollars. Others, CNN reports, believe that the move is shrewdly tied to the bailout but is really focused on organizing a new segment of low wage workers.
