WYOMING, Penn.-A group of workers from the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades has been picketing the future site of a UFCW FCU branch and are threatening to move their accounts-quite possibly to one of the big banks.

John Hayduk, CEO at the $105-million CU, said that because the new facility is being built by a contractor he has no control over who does the work, though he noted that he has built three other buildings to date and used union workers whenever possible-especially if they were members of the CU. "Ninety to 95% of the workers were union in the three buildings we've built," he said.
