Common bond

The common bond between Caisse members is established based on one of the following groups:

  • Employees and retirees of a common employer located in the same building, in Quebec, where there are 1 or more unions affiliated or previously affiliated with Fédération des travailleurs et travailleuses du Québec (FTQ), as well as unions located in the same building, their employees, retirees and managers, excluding groups who fit the definition and are members of another group caisse
  • Fédération des travailleurs et travailleuses du Québec (FTQ) employees, retirees, managers and affiliated organizations

We are the primary financial partner for workers in Quebec.

  • Being the leader in performance and profitability to ensure the financial well-being of our individual and collective members;
  • Being the preferred partner of our members and organizations in achieving social and community projects close to their heart.



With origins based solidly in the cooperative movement, the Credit Union has made solidarity its primary mission. Our presence and involvement in the communities we serve demonstrate our desire to contribute to the individual and collective enrichment of our members.

Times are changing…
An overview of your Caisse, committed to your best interests since 1952

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.
