EFCU was established on July 1, 1953 by members of IBEW 68 Denver to better the financial future of IBEW 68 members and their families. Over the years we have worked to expand our membership to include additional Denver area labor unions such as IBEW 111, UFCW 7, Plumbers Local 3, Carpenters Local 55, OPEIU 5, Sheet Metal Workers Local 9 and many other labor unions through our affiliation with the Colorado AFL-CIO and the Denver Area Labor Federation.
The goal of the credit union, from day one, is best described by our mission statement which is the following:
"To serve the current and future financial needs of our present and potential members in the most convenient and productive manner possible and provide our members with expanding financial services at fair and favorable rates and terms, while continuing to assure the credit union’s sound financial position.”
As the only Colorado credit union, or bank, with a unionized office staff (organized through OPEIU Local 30), members can rest assured knowing they have access to competitive financial products and services while also supporting fellow labor union members.
