UE Files Charges Over Wells Fargo Bank Order To Stop Paying Worker Benefits – 07/08/09

Wells Fargo bank has instructed Quad City Die Casting not to pay contractual wages and benefits legally due to workers at the Illinois company. So the union is filing charges to make sure the workers get paid. Leah Fried is an organizer with the United Electrical workers.

[Fried]: “They’re clearly illegal. Wells Fargo’s decision not paying benefits is in violation of the law. It’s also immoral and repugnant – and just outrageous.”

UE is fighting Wells Fargo’s decision to cut off financing for Quad City Die Casting. The bank’s decision means the plant is scheduled to close by the end of August.
