It is in the context of a postwar economic boom that workers began establishing savings and credit cooperatives adapted to their needs. While modest at first, cooperatives quickly became successful, leading to their development and growth. They became major players in the workplaces where they were established. Given their particular situation, they are greatly dependent on the economic realities of the businesses and sectors where they were born.
Caisse d'économie des Travailleurs unis was created in 2005. Today, it represents more than 16,000 members from 8 major sectors and handles close to $900 million in business under management.
The Caisse has a presence throughout Quebec, in 6 financial service centres and 15 advisory service centres, 12 of which established in the workplace.
