Workers at Third Wells Fargo Branch File For Union Election

In an industry notoriously hostile to unions, bank workers at a Daytona, Fla., Wells Fargo branch who are organizing to join CWA have filed for an election with the National Labor Relations Board. This comes on the heels of November’s dual filings by Wells Fargo workers in Albuquerque, N.M., and Bethel, Ala. According to Axios, currently only approximately 1 percent of all bank employees nationwide enjoy the benefits of union membership.

Bank employees at the Daytona branch cited understaffing, wages which haven't increased in five years, and poor benefits packages as the impetus for unionizing.

The union elections mark a groundbreaking moment for Wells Fargo Workers United-CWA’s nationwide union drive and financial services workers’ rapidly growing fight for a seat at the table.
