Workers Rally in 20 Cities to Stop Plant Closing

June 25, 2009: On Tuesday, workers and community supporters rallied in front of Wells Fargo banks in 20 cities across the country to stop the closing of Quad Cities Die-Casting in Moline, Ill.

Members of the United Electrical Workers union are fighting to save 80 good union jobs at the family-owned company.

Wells Fargo has cut off credit to the manufacturer, even though it’s not in bankruptcy and its business is fundamentally sound.

Last year, Wells Fargo got $25 billion in federal bailout money.
