Heard Off the Street: Alcoa chiefs breathing sigh of relief (second item)
Christine Zarnich of the South Side Slopes often wondered whether the 10 years she put in at Equibank entitled her to a pension. But the 62-year-old could not figure out who or where to call to find out, because the Pittsburgh bank was acquired by Integra in 1993, which was swallowed by National City in 1996, which was taken over by PNC Financial Services in 2008.
