Account to Settle: The Story of the United Bank Workers (SORWUC), An
The Bank Book Collective
In 1976, a group of women bank workers decided to organize their workplace. The banks were enraged. When they decided to do it themselves the big unions were upstaged. Over the next two years, nearly a thousand bank employees in western Canada participated in a unionizing drive that challenged not only the banks but organized labour's approach to a workplace they had long considered beyond their range of union activity. This is the story of the United Bank Workers of SORWUC (Service, Office and Retail Workers Union of Canada). With honesty and humour the clerks and tellers of the UBW tell why they decided to take on the banks and what happened when they did.
