“In a big bank, we’re not familiar with each other. It’s more personable at the credit union. It’s like talking to a friend. I call, and they know me and know what I need.”
It only takes a short time for Ironworkers CU to make a big difference in a member’s life, and Kevin is a wonderful example of just that. A member since December 2013, Kevin uses the Credit Union for all his daily banking needs – checking, savings and loans – and happily spreads the word to his co-workers about the exceptional service he receives. As with many members of the Credit Union, Kevin says the best part about being a member is the relationship he builds with the team in the branches. “In a big bank, we’re not familiar with each other. It’s more personable at the credit union. It’s like talking to a friend. I call, and they know me and know what I need.” Jamie Koster, in the Portland branch, has been especially helpful. “She’s always looking out for my best interest and trying to help me fix my credit. They give me lots of advice. Sometimes I take it, sometimes I don’t,” he says laughing. The advice seems to be working though. He’s already paid off one vehicle loan and well on his way toward paying off loans for another truck and trailer – all while building and repairing his credit so he can eventually buy a house. With a baby coming in September, Kevin cheerfully says the ladies are “trying to help me be an adult!”

We are the “go to” people when our members need assistance with any aspect of their financial lives. If you or any of your fellow Ironworkers have questions, just pick up the phone.
