The Amalgamated Bank of Chicago is a commercial bank headquartered in Chicago, Illinois. In addition to its downtown Chicago office, the bank has a branch office in Warrenville, Illinois.
The Bank was founded by the Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America labor union (a predecessor of Unite Here and Workers United, SEIU) in 1922, but it is no longer majority union-owned. The bank continues to provide numerous services targeted to labor unions and a number of union officers from the Chicago area serve on the Bank’s board of directors. Amalgamated Bank of Chicago counts unions and liberal nonprofits among its clients.
