The No Surcharge Alliance in California has grown to more than 100 banks, 300 credit unions, and 2,600 automated teller machines, said Robert Rose, president and chief executive officer of Credit Union Cooperative Systems Inc.

In February, a charter group, consisting of the credit union cooperative and six banks, headed by Union Bank of California, announced the No Surcharge Alliance in response to decisions by BankAmerica Corp. and Wells Fargo & Co. to charge noncustomers $1.50 to use their ATM networks. Credit unions, banks, and thrifts have continued to join the alliance.
